The Public Safety Communications Team coordinates communications with local, state, and federal public safety agencies. Our team is committed to improving interoperability and has designed the Regional Operations Common (ROC) talkgroups for federal/county/city users to communicate with SRS users via a ROC radio. The Public Safety Communications team established the Statewide Radio System and is responsible for its ongoing operations, maintenance, governance, and expansion.
We provide guidance and assistance to state and local public safety agencies with radio communications, interoperability, and equipment purchases who want to enhance their communications with the Statewide Radio System (SRS). There are three usage tiers to choose from.
- Tier 1: ROC interoperability is a no cost option, except to purchase and install the ROC radio at your dispatch center. See the ROC page for more information.
- Tier 2: Adding radios on the system to become a full-time user for all your agency communications needs. See the SRS page for more information. There is a user fee per radio.
- Tier 3: Adding a console system. Replacing an existing, outdated console system with one that connects to the SRS is another option with cost considerations that are determined case-by-case. The Public Safety Communications team will discuss the alternatives with you and provide a service agreement for your agency.
