Today, the City of Oakland finance committee voted to dump its current radio system and join EBRCS, despite objections from the city's IT department who defended the systems functionality. OPD officers association addressed the committee and expressed a zero confidence rating in the current system.

The switch isn't a done deal yet, the City Council has to vote for the switch next week, which is expected to pass.

Can you provide a link to the article, please? I will try, in the meantime to search for it and/or similar articles. Thanks!

Yeah, the issues are well understood. Oakland's current system has been plagued with problems both very real and imagined.

One highlight of that article mentions one city official complaining that Oakland won't have a seat on the governing body of EBRCSA -- they're pissed because Livermore has 2. Penis contest ahead of officer safety. I usually stay out of discussions involving radio systems implementation because I don't know much about it, but does this moron Gardener actually believe that the governing body of EBRCSA, which consists of police and fire officials from neighboring jurisdictions, would actually make decisions that put Oakland responders at risk? Of course not.

Oakland City Council today voted to move over to EBRCS at a cost of $810k over 5 years, KTVU reports.

There was no information on a timeline.
