Philadelphia to get $34M upgrade for emergency radio system

The Philadelphia Daily News

PHILADELPHIA, Pa. — Philadelphia cops, firefighters and prison officials will receive about 2,700 new radios as part of a proposed upgrade to the city's Motorola emergency radio system.

The new radios are among several other perks included in the upgrade that Frank Punzo, deputy commissioner for the Department of Public Property, will detail to City Council today.

Punzo will reintroduce an ordinance for the $34 million upgrade because the city now plans to lease the new equipment and technology from Motorola over four years.
