City council to consider financing for new radios
Placeholder Image
The city of Camden has until Jan. 1, 2013 -- a little more than four and a half months from now -- to comply with federal mandates concerning emergency communication interoperability. The mandates grew out of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans where law enforcement and other emergency agencies found it difficult to communicate with each other. The solution is two-fold: create interoperability, where different agencies from different jurisdictions can communicate and act as cohesive units; and narrowbanding to common frequencies.
