Welcome to DTELS.ORG updated 15th January 2023
May I extend a big welcome to those of you who may be visiting this web site for the first time. If you not already aware, this site is dedicated to recording some of the history of the Directorate of Telecommunications.
As a public sector department within the Home Office for England and Wales, the Directorate was responsible for providing wireless communication support to Emergency Service users in the two countries.
Its origins go back to World War II (circa 1939) and grew over the years to become a major service provider to a wider range of Public Safety central and local government services. In 1991 it changed its name to DTELS and three years later became a private sector company following a trade sale to National Transcommunications Limited (ntl).
