Amarillo Police Chief Ed Drain wants to make his department the best trained and equipped in the area and new radios are a big step toward that goal. The communication master site agreement between the city and Potter County will allow the transition to a Nexgen Radio communication system.
Chief Drain talks about the shortcomings of the old system.
The new radios will allow for an interoperable system, coordinating emergency personnel from the city and both Potter and Randall County.
The Chief added
All upgrades should be complete by spring of 2018.
