New Radio System Is On The Way

The nearly ten year wait for a new police and fire radio system in Gulfport is almost over. The system is expected to go on line the week of March 25th, bringing big changes to the way officers and firefighters talk to dispatchers.

When the new radio is up and running next month in Gulfport, it will replace one that has been in use since 1978. Gulfport is the first phase of what eventually will be a 15-million dollar countywide radio system.
