Tactical Command Industries (TCI) was founded nearly 20 years ago by a group of law enforcement professionals who understand what it takes to succeed in the field.

One such product is the company’s all new CIPS (“Covert In Plain Sight”) Communications Kit for police officers.

The CIPS Communications Kit allows plainclothes officers to remain covert as they transmit communications through standard earbuds commonly associated with smartphones or MP3 players, making it appear as if the operator is listening to music or simply talking on the phone.

Ideal for covert and plainclothes officers, the CIPS Communications Kit connects to a tactical radio and enables two-way communication through the earbud microphone, just like a cell phone. A separate micro PTT (Push-to-Talk) hook-and-loop ring attaches to a fingertip or belt loop, enabling the operator to key the radio and use the microphone in the headset without any indication to outsiders that a tactical radio is in use.

Engineered for maximum discretion, the CIPS Kit’s 60-inch cable is optimal for running smoothly under clothing. The micro PTT ring comes in black or beige to blend in with clothing.

The lightweight and low-profile unit also features a quick-detach system with no threaded plugs or hardwired connections, and is compatible with most tactical and patrol radios.

The CIPS Communications Kit retails for $140 and is available now.
