The Shield Above: Protecting Police Facilities & Operations

In the line of duty, police departments are tasked with safeguarding their communities, ensuring order, and responding to emergencies, often at a moment’s notice. While they’re experts at managing the human element of public safety, there’s one unpredictable force of nature that can disrupt their critical operations: lightning strikes. 

The Threat of Lightning Strikes 

Lightning is a powerful and destructive force of nature. In a split second, a lightning strike can cause fires, damage electrical systems, disrupt communication networks, and even endanger lives. Police departments, which rely heavily on electronic equipment and communication systems, are particularly vulnerable to the havoc wreaked by lightning strikes. These interruptions can disrupt daily operations, compromise public safety, and result in significant repair costs.
