Listened to the foot chase and search of the suspect in New London the other night that ended up at the mayor's house. Included were NLPD, WPD and CSP. As far as I could tell no interop comms were used in this incident. Dispatch was relaying info to their respective officers. Someone even said the suspect was even black, but was white. All these millions of dollars for these new radio systems that they say we need so that one unit can talk to another unit clear across the sate, if not the country but they can't or won't talk to another department on the same radio system. Yes I've heard CSPERN used in the past and it has worked well but if these systems are not used ALL the time when needed, I see a problem. Any thoughts?
