Broward County Office of Regional Communications Technology is currently in the process of updating their radio system to the Motorola P25 Digital system. This system is more compatible with the system that the City of Coral Springs upgraded to back in May of 2015. Broward County is now requiring any user that goes onto their system to have the radio authentication feature added to each radio that would be used on their radio system once the upgrade is complete. The current tentative date of completion is June of 2019. This is the most common method of protection that involves closing the system so that only the radios provisioned on the system database have access. Even though the City of Coral Springs is under a different radio system than Broward County, this feature will be necessary for any mutual aid operation that would require Public Safety to assist the City of Coral Springs or if Coral Springs needs to assist any neighboring jurisdiction that will be under Broward County’s radio system. All of the Public Safety personnel for both Police and Fire will benefit by adding the feature of Radio Authentication. This will avoid any gap in communication with surrounding cities.

On May 13th we submitted a purchase request to purchase the master code plug and template development for Law. This is necessary to complete this project. Fire has already purchased those. We then will have Motorola come in and help with this. We are waiting for them to clear their techs to come to the PSAP. Due to COVID-19, they have been very strict on allowing techs into any PSAP for their health and safety. Once the code plug and template are built, then we will have to touch all public safety radios again to download before county goes live. We are still waiting on exact date. Update on go live date of September 21st for the 1st phase. There will be a total of 3 phases that will take one week each.
