Prior to founding CPR, Turner spent more than two-decades teaching others how to incorporate two-way radio communications into campus settings to improve safety and reduce outside threats.

In addition to that position, Turner has also taught Homeland Security courses at Moreno Valley College and serves as an Education Sector Advisor for Infragard, a partnership between the FBI and private industry for infrastructure protection.

As a national expert on emergency planning, Turner is a firm believer that professional grade two-way radios are critical tools for improving safety throughout every campus of the United States. He first became familiar with RCA two-way radio equipment after he assumed role of directing all communications strategies for the Alvord Unified School District.

“Before I started working with the school district, they allowed another dealer to dictate what they needed and how to use it. As a result, they were using a mix of VHF and UHF analog radios and using a repeater at the high schools, and the frequencies were all over the place. I came in and took it over and started shopping around for another dealer that could provide a better product at a better price. I got rid of the repeater systems, started using the RCA RDR2500 UHF radios, and the difference was immediate. Plus, because the price was so good, I was able to buy more radios for the entire district,” said Turner.

Turner will continue to focus on introducing the benefits of two-way technology into the nation’s education industry.
