January 25, 2006|by TARA REILLY

A planned public safety radio communications system for Washington County will include the purchase of 1,250 mobile and portable radios, alpha-numeric pagers, and 16 consoles at a county facility on Elliott Parkway and at the Sheriff's Department, a consultant told the County Commissioners Tuesday.

The new system will replace outdated equipment and improve communication among police and emergency service personnel, as well as with other agencies inside and outside of the county, David McCobin, a consultant with L. Robert Kimball and Associates, told the commissioners.

Commissioners President Gregory I. Snook said the system was on Tuesday's commissioners' agenda as a progress report, not to address costs.

According to information included in with the agenda, the county's current capital budget lists the project's cost at $21.7 million.
