Description

Through the Public Safety System Modernization Project (PSSM), the County is upgrading the radio system to meet the Federal Communications Commission mandated 800 Mhz frequency to ensure reliable and effective public safety communications for the operations of its first responders and to sustain communications interoperability for seamless mutual aid among its regional partners. The process of moving to the new system will be complete in February 2021. This project will provide for the purchase of P-25 compliant handheld and vehicle-based radiosthat allow the affected departments to complete immediate re-banding within the 800 MHz frequency.
