Was reading the online version of Newsday and I see where Bellone wants to upgrade to digital for SCPD.

"The county executive's capital plan also calls for providing nearly $11.9 million in 2015 to update police emergency radio communications to a digital system, claiming that the old analog system proved "outdated, outmoded and unreliable during superstorm Sandy." He added that the 2016 plan calls for another $10 million for new radios.Among other projects Bellone is proposing."

You know what is most reliable during a disaster? Non-trunked analog. There is a reason San Francisco, which is 800-trunked, keeps 45mhz radios in all their police cruisers.

APCO P25 is a definite.
ADP Encryption can be "Utilized", but no one will know for sure on what and how many groups that it will be "Utilized" for, until the system is in its final upgrade phase.
Planning is to commence in 2015 with equipment purchases and installation beginning in 2016.
The conversion from 800 MHz to 700 MHz will be completed in phases.
Phase I: Planning for the replacement of the first 11 of 22 channels at every tower site.
Phase II: Commencement of replacing channels 1-11 at every tower site and replacing half of the radios at precincts and specialized units.
Phase III: Completion of the project by replacing channels 12-22 and replacing the rest of the radios.
