N.C. deputies go to new radio system

DURHAM, N.C. — Installation of the 800 megahertz digital radio system is almost complete at the Durham County Sheriff's Office, where deputies are already benefiting from the upgrades.

The system allows deputies to communicate directly with Durham police, paramedics and other emergency personnel. Under the old 400 megahertz system, deputies were limited to a few talk channels and had to rely on emergency dispatchers to connect them to other agencies. The change also allows the Sheriff's Office to utilize the statewide VIPER radio system, which is being constructed.
