Cincinnati police union to explore possibility of suing Motorola over radios - Story

CINCINNATI -- The president of Cincinnati police union has directed their attorney to explore the possibility of suing Motorola over $5 million in radios issued to city police officers last spring.

Dan Hils, Cincinnati police union president, said in a Facebook post Sunday that he would consult their attorney, Stephen Lazarus, over whether or not they will pursue a lawsuit against Motorola over radio systems that he says are sometimes faulty.


In his post, Hils recalls a time when the radios failed, following the Sept. 4 shooting on the riverfront after the firework display. He said officers in pursuit of the subject and amongst the crowd were unable to transmit any information.

Hils said the fire department began using these radios three years ago, and they have required “constant redesign and repair.” He said some of these problems still exist with their radios.

Because of issues with radio transmissions, the Police Chief ordered all officered to ride in two-person untis, according to Hils.
