Currently radios operate on the original 800 MHz frequency range. Operating on a different frequency range from other agencies hinders these departments from communicating with each other and state and federal law enforcement agencies, thus creating a problem when multi-jurisdictional incidents occur. With federal assistance, these two departments are replacing their mobile and handheld radios prior to upgrading the radio system. FY 2011 funds will be used to begin radio system upgrades by purchasing P25 system hardware for tower sites.
