ATLANTA The Atlanta City Council is scheduled to vote today on a $40 million digital radio system city officials say will improve communications within Atlanta's emergency service agencies and with those in surrounding areas.

City officials believe the new system will help Atlanta police avoid some of the problems encountered in the early moments after the March 11, 2005 Fulton County courthouse shootings, when more than a half-dozen law enforcement agencies couldn't talk to each other on their police radios as they pursued suspect Brian Nichols.
