Police department will soon need new radios | The Redding PilotThis week’s Board of Selectmen meeting will be remembered as Selectman Leon Karvelis’s last meeting on the board before he steps down on Nov. 30. But in other news, it was a busy meeting full of different topics.
In the first item of business, police Chief Doug Fuchs reported on his department’s need for new radios. The radios the department currently uses are reaching the end of their usefulness, and in a few years, they will no longer be serviced or repaired by the company that makes them.
The new radios could be purchased as capital items for fiscal year 2017-18.
The cost of the new radios is projected to run around $1.03 million. The department currently uses Motorola radios.
