BAPERN was developed in the 1970’s to facilitate interagency radio communications and has been used on a daily basis since that time for wide-area and regional law enforcement notifications, as well as incident command during special events and operations.Over the past 40 years, BAPERN has grown significantly from a small number of Boston area agencies to the current 166 local, state, county, campus and federal law enforcement agencies that use the system every day to communicate essential public safety information.Further, BAPERN is governed by strict policy and procedure, thus ensuring its users are operating on the system to maximum advantage, are properly adhering to the frequent system tests, and are communicating in a manner designed to achieve maximum results and apprehensions.

As an ancillary component of this recent devastation, the GBPC can now also state that when a major terrorist event occurred in city of Boston, it was the BAPERN system that was relied upon and utilized by all responding law enforcement agencies to effectively and immediately communicate critical information across local, state, and federal lines of government.

ABOUT THE BOSTON AREA POLICE EMERGENCY RADIO NETWORK (BAPERN) Long before the events of September 11th and current efforts towards protecting our homeland from threats of terrorism, the GBPC recognized a critical need for law enforcement communications interoperability.

In the early 1970′s, a series of large scale incidents occurred in the cities of Cambridge and Chelsea that highlighted the inability of police officers from many responding agencies from communicating with one another on scene.

It’s a casual French Bistro inspired by the bistronomique movement in Paris.

Papilles serves a 3 course prix fixe meal around $35 with a weekly changing menu.

They also have a great selection of hard to find natural, French wines.

In addition, BAPERN provides users with the ability to make regional-only notifications using the six district channels and four district digital tactical channels.

All BAPERN member agency personnel have the standardized BAPERN channel plan programmed into their radios, which allows for consistent access to BAPERN channels from responding agencies during critical incidents involving mutual aid.
