County OKs $60M radio system for emergency responders

Law enforcement, emergency responders and public safety agencies in Pima County will have the ability to communicate directly during major incidents thanks to a $60.3 million radio system approved Tuesday.

The Pima County Board of Supervisors voted 5-0 to acquire the PCWIN Voice Radio System that will provide a direct link to area agencies charged with responding to emergencies.

Motorola of Schaumburg, Ill., was awarded the contract to install and maintain the system for five years.

There are three additional five-year renewal options.

Most of the money for the system will come from a 2004 Pima County bond package.

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
