PASCO COUNTY, FL ---- The Pasco County Board of County Commissioners (BCC) approved a new contract to upgrade Pasco County’s Public Safety radio system. The $14.5 million contract was approved at the February 9, 2016 BCC meeting and will pay for a complete overhaul of Pasco County’s Public Safety Communications system. The system will support critical communications for the County’s Public Safety agencies such as Pasco Fire Rescue, Pasco Sheriff’s Office, Office of Emergency Management and other public safety departments. This system will allow the County to expand radio coverage and to create seamless communication among all County agencies. “Pasco County Public Safety is taking a major step forward in digital communications technology,” said Todd Bayley, Chief Information Officer, Pasco County. “One of the great advantages of this system is it will provide more efficient, secure communications among local, county and state partners.” A contract has been signed with Williams Communications, Inc., which has partnered with Harris Corporation - a Florida-based company experienced in solving mission-critical challenges. Together they comprise a team that has the knowledge and experience to manage, maintain and support the Pasco County system. This is another example of your “Penny for Pasco” working for you. The Citizens of Pasco approved the surtax on November 6th, 2012 to be used, in part, for Public Safety improvements.
