ABSTRACT
The author talks about the mergence of the communication systems in the police and fire department. The first system he met was a 450 megahertz (MHz) conventional system for the city of Orlando police department in 1984. In Orlando, they advanced the police and fire in a new 800 MHz trunked system, followed by the expansion of the system with public works in it and connected to Motorola SmartZone system. A 700 MHz trunked P25 Phase II system was built in Houston. He thinks that Internet Protocol (IP) is coming which will result to an IP wireless network.
