SEATTLE — BRINC has unveiled BRINC Ball, a two-way communications device built to enhance the de-escalation capabilities of first responders.

The BRINC Ball works essentially as a ruggedized throw phone. Agencies can deploy the ball in areas they cannot reach, and call the ball to activate its microphone and speaker. Any number of team members can join the call for negotiation or crisis situations. The ball has a variety of pre-programmed text commands for adjusting settings, checking battery life, and even viewing its GPS location. All of BRINC Ball’s features are accessible by calling or text, no app needed.

The BRINC Ball is water resistant and durable, tested to survive 10-foot drops onto concrete. Battery life is similarly extreme, with 24 hours of sustained talk time, or over 5 days of standby time.

BRINC will unveil the BRINC Ball at the IACP conference at booth #7827.
