New, $20M radio towers would help N.Y. cops

LOCKPORT, N.Y. — Retiring Niagara County Emergency Management Director James C. Volkosh last week proposed to a County Legislature committee a $20 million project to construct radio towers all over the county.

The 13 proposed towers would improve signal strength for fire and police agencies, as well as enable all the fire and police departments to speak directly to each other on the air. The fire companies already have interoperability, as it's called, but the police aren't part of that yet, Volkosh told the Community Safety and Security Committee.
