Henry County is improving its emergency radio network.

New $924K contract to improve emergency radio network

The Henry County Board of Commissioners voted at its May 7 regular meeting to approve a contract with Harris Corporation.

The contract is for the enhancement and increased coverage to the Public Safety Emergency Communications network through the implementation of LTE systems on public safety radios. The improvements will increase the ability and further expand the coverage on portable radios throughout the county, according to a staff report, and replace redundancy in areas where radio coverage may not exist.

Funding for the LTE platform implementation at a cost of $924,595 is in the SPLOST budget.
