Auditor General DePasquale Completes Review of Statewide Radio Network for State Police & Emergency Responders

Auditor General Eugene DePasquale released his audit of the purchasing process for a new radio network designed to help Pennsylvania State Police and other emergency responders communicate with each other and keep the public safe.

The P-25 public safety radio system now being deployed by State Police is currently operating in 45 counties. It provides wireless voice and data networking for public safety and emergency response communications.

"My team found that the State Police and Office of Administration followed all applicable procedures in the latest radio system upgrade, which had a price tag of $44.5 million," DePasquale said. "Importantly, the new system will use some of the existing infrastructure such as towers and microwave relays, so taxpayers did not have to buy those items all over again."
