An article in the Journal & Topics Online site discusses a new radio system for agencies handled by Northwest Central Dispatch.

Mt. Prospect trustees recently approved an intergovernmental agreement with Northwest Central 911 System for the financing of the purchase of radios in the amount of $837,468.27.

Funding for the radios will come from the Capital Improvement Fund.

… the 12-year system used by police and fire has become outdated and is no longer supported by the vendor, Motorola. The new system will consolidate all member agencies into one system.

The original six member agencies of NWCD were Mt. Prospect, Elk Grove Village, Arlington Hts., Buffalo Grove, Palatine and Prospect Hts police. Since 1998, Schaumburg, Hoffman Estates, Streamwood, Inverness and Rolling Meadows joined NWCD.
