The ‘Statewide Law Enforcement Radio System’ is a dedicated digital radio network for officials from 17 state agencies. They’ll use the new system for local and statewide communications.
Tiffany Koenigkramer (KOH-nig-KRAY-mur) is spokeswoman for the state’s Department of Management Services, which oversees the project.
“So now all state agency law enforcement officers are now able to communicate with one another on one radio system. For example an FHP from Tallahassee can now talk with FDLE or Fish & Wildlife down in Miami using the same radio system.”
The new network also allows officers to travel throughout the state without changing equipment.
Until now, officials going from one area to another often had to switch radios because of multiple systems.
