3 Why are we here? Coverage First responders cannot reliably communicate in Zelienople and Northern Areas of County Capacity Population growth rate is at 5.65% and rising putting strain on the radio system Loss of radio transmissions due to overloading radio channels

4 Why are we here? Reliability Risk of losing radio communications due to unreliable backhaul Interoperability Neighboring Counties have different radio systems increasing difficulty to communicate

5 Why are we here? Functionality Consoles and Radio equipment is approaching end of life in 2018 and Potential adversaries can monitor sensitive radio transmissions from Law Enforcement (encryption)

6 Land Mobile Radio Procurement Spectrum FCC Licensing Radio System Infrastructure - Motorola Console Positions - Motorola Subscribers Radios - Motorola Site Support Tower, Shelters, Backup Power, Security - JG Radio Site Connectivity and Backhaul 2 Vendors

7 Radio Project costs

8 Negotiated Features Coverage Added additional sites to ensure adequate in-building coverage Resolves Zelienople and Northeast region Capacity Future growth covered with 6 th channel

9 Negotiated Features Interoperability Intra-County everyone on the same platform Inter-County for mutual aid Subscribers System discounts enhanced with additional subscribers

10 Additional Negotiated Features GPS/AVL System Equipped Equips dispatchers and agencies to know vehicle locations Helps to improve dispatch response times Encryption and Other the Air Rekeying/Programming (OTAR/OTAP) Secure communications Saves time and expense for personnel traveling to reprogram radios

11 Additional Negotiated Features ISSI Enhances interoperability with State and other P25 counties with highest level of integration of systems Radio over Cellular Reduces some higher end radios System capable to integrate into future broadband data

12 Shared Core Shared Core Decisions impacted by outside influences Potential loss of functionality if connection interrupted Subject to policies and governance in place Lower initial capital cost ($361,196 savings)

13 Shared Core Shared Core Lower on-going maintenance cost for the core Highest level of interoperability within region
