Background Discussion

There are two Public Safety Projects that have a regional impact encompassing both Manatee and Sarasota Counties, including Longboat Key and the other cities in Manatee County. The existing 800 MHZ Public Safety Radio System will be upgraded to the current P25 radio standards, and the existing 911 Call-Taking System will be upgraded to the current Next Generation 911 standards.  Both of these projects offer improved public safety service delivery and operational efficiencies that span across geographical boundaries.  An update will be provided at this joint meeting along with an opportunity to ask questions regarding current project status and strategic direction.
