Miami-Dade Police Radios

MIAMI-DADE Glitches and garbled conversations are forcing Miami-Dade Police to temporarily shelve a new $25 million encrypted radio system designed to stop civilians from monitoring police.
Maj. Nancy Perez told The Miami Herald that the department would resume using its old, analog system by the end of the week.
In the last two weeks, officers reported transmission delays, garbled conversations, echoes and "dead zones" where the system doesn't broadcast properly.
Miami-Dade Police switched to the encrypted system to deter criminals and other civilians from monitoring police activity through online tracking applications.
Police officials told the county commission that they were confident the company that supplied the system, Harris Corp., could fix the problems.
