Exclamation Secret Service, Capitol Police radios couldn't communicate during DC chase

Secret Service, Capitol Police radios couldn't communicate during DC chase - Investigations

Terrance Gainer, sergeant at arms of the U.S. Senate, confirmed that the radio systems of the Secret Service and the Capitol Police operate on different frequencies and were unable to directly communicate as Miriam Carey raced down Pennsylvania Avenue toward the Capitol.

You would think they would have a patch between the SS VHF and the MPD P25 system, but there must be too much red tape involved.
