safety in schools, county and district officials recently approved the
installation of a new digital radio system that will foster more direct
communication between Lake County Schools, the Lake County Sheriff’s Office and
emergency first responders.

Schools Digital UHF Motorola System. Through a separate agreement signed in
August 2015, the Lake County Sheriff’s Office’ 9-1-1 center will be able to
monitor a dedicated talk group of school administrators. That agreement also
will allow school administrators to contact the Sheriff’s Office and first
responders directly through the radio system.

is already in place, and the district is in the process of completing
installation of the radio system in schools. The project is expected to be
complete in February 2017.

switch their radios to a specified channel and connect directly to the
countywide public safety network.
