A Message from Phil Coyne, President of CRG
I’m proud to introduce the first Newsletter for the Critical Response Group (CRG). Our Newsletter will be a means of updating people connected with our company on new product offerings and enhancements, public safety training and events we conduct, emerging safety initiatives and spotlighting strategic partners. We want our clients to have a sense of comfort that when working with Critical Response Group they know we are collaborating with the right people to ensure the products we provide are relevant to the public safety community.
CRGs in use for real-world event security June – July 2019
Utilizing CRGs and GXP are a great way to provide security for pre-planned multi-jurisdictional events, and also a way to prepare first responders for communicating using CRGs during un-planned emergencies. Please see the great work our clients and partners have done during the last month!
Pine Hill Police Department, Camden County NJ, uses CRGs to prepare for security at Trump National Golf Course, Philadelphia. Chief Winters makes sure he has both laminated maps and access to GXP OnScene in his command vehicle.
The Ewing Police Department and the Mercer County Emergency Services Communications Center (MCESCC), Mercer County NJ, use CRGs and GXP OnScene to track the location of their officers during the Ewing 4th of July fireworks.
The Barnegat Police Department, Ocean County NJ, utilized CRGs and GXP OpsView at their command post during their 4th of July fireworks to provide security for the event.
CRG was proud to be a part of the new security initiative at Art All Night in Trenton, NJ this year after the tragic events that occurred last year at this beloved community event.
Both the NJ State Police, the Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office, and the Trenton Police Department in Mercer County NJ successfully communicated from the same common operating picture. Visit Art All Night 2020!

On June 29, 2019 Critical Response Group was proud to be a part of the school shooting simulation in Warren County NJ, where CRGs where implemented to improve response and communication between law enforcement and emergency medical services.
The only way ambulances knew which door to arrive at was through use of the CRG! Thanks to the NJ Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness and the Warren County Prosecutor’s Office for organizing such great training.

What Right Looks Like
A mentor of mine who rose to the highest levels of success and respect in law enforcement often uses a simple phrase to describe something that he sees as representing best practices or the pinnacle of performance in a certain discipline: “that’s what right looks like.” It’s a concise and effective way of saying that this is the example we should all be trying to follow and emulate.
