The Radio Squad was a unit of NYPD officers, including Sandy Kean and Larry Trent, equipped with two-way radios installed in their cars.


In the 1930s, radio-dispatched police cars were an exciting new technology, and New York City was among the first cities to adopt it.

Two outstanding officers, Sandy Keene and his partner Larry Trent, served in the NYPD's "Radio Squad" in the late 1930s and early 1940s.
