Butler County is located in southwestern Ohio and is a part of the Cincinnati Metropolitan Statistical Area. It was formed from parts of Hamilton County on March 24, 1803.

Public Safety Communications

For over 50 years all Public Safety agencies in Butler County used VHF for communications. In 2010 the county switched from VHF to an APCO-25 (Digital) 800 MHz Trunked Radio System called the Butler Regional Interoperable Communications System (BRICS).

In September 2014, Butler County added the BRICS infrastructure to the new statewide Ohio MARCS-IP system as a separate zone controller, which is now Zone 4 of the MARCS-IP system. All agencies in the county are now using this system. You will need a digital scanner to monitor it.
