Agents don't carry there radios with all the time. The only times agents I worked with had them was during active surveillance operations, all other times they had no radio but did have there smart phones. During the peak of the Nextel Network in my area more task force and surveillance traffic took place on the Nextels vs LMRs. As long as the apps are used to augment LMRs I see it as a gain, but as a replacement it seems like a major officer safety issue.
