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.
