Staff members want to replace the city's trunked radio system for a system that allows officers to communicate with other law enforcement agencies without a disconnect, Rees said. It is part of Project 25, a manufacturing standard for interoperable digital two-way wireless communications products.

Reading the article, Motorola is proposing to move Longview onto the ETMC system. Smith County, including Tyler, just to the west of Longview, are on this system, and have been for some time. Waxahachie, in Ellis County, made the move last year. The system is analog at this time, but plans to convert to P25. Plans also in the works to tie the ETMC system, as well as several others, including STARNET, into a regional interop system.
