Problems continue to plague Philly police radios

The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA- Philadelphia’s trouble-plagued police radio system has more problems. Chief Inspector Michael Feeney said the city’s police radio system experienced a number of interruptions between eight o’clock Sunday morning and nine o’clock Tuesday morning.

Calls between street officers and the radio room dropped out for ten to 15 seconds at a time.

Feeney said the problem appears to be with a line somewhere between City Hall and the police department’s broadcasting point at Domino Lane.

Feeney said the cause of the problem is not yet known, so for now the department has its primary and back-up systems running simultaneously.

Meanwhile, Feeney said, police officers are riding in pairs in patrol cars, since the interruption in communications could jeopardize their safety.
