Hagerstown council gets update on plan for radio communications system

November 19, 2004|by GREGORY T. SIMMONS

The Hagerstown City Council on Tuesday heard an update of plans for a new emergency radio communications system that would involve both the county and the city.

City Police Chief Arthur Smith said during the council's work session that the bulk of the cost to the city would be new hand-held radios for police officers.

The money will not be an added expense, however, because there already were plans for radio upgrades.

City and county officials said Tuesday that while the new system will not be in place for two to three years, bid requests will be sent as soon as January.
