Those laptop computers that are ubiquitous in police cars these days -- at least in most areas -- have supplanted two-radio radios as the primary communications methods. Most police fleets now are computer dispatched, which in theory is a great thing, as it allows central commanders to instantly know where everyone on duty is at any one time. The downside are situations such as is outlined here, which at least in theory could easily be avoided through proper policies and training.
