Prior to the implementation of the Northern Kentucky Regional Communications System (NKYRCS) the Counties of Boone, Campbell, and Kenton and their partner agencies operated on a variety of conventional and trunked radio systems. These radio systems were independently owned and maintained by the respective county that the agency operated in. All Fire Services used VHF while all Law Enforcement used UHF frequecinies. As equipment started to reach its end of life the decision was made for all 3 counties to upgrade at the same time to the same radio system.

On October 3rd, 2016 The Fiscal Courts of Boone, Campbell, & Kenton Counties with the help of Tusa Consulting Services and Trott Communications Group issued a Request For Proposal (RPF) for a new P25 Public Safety Grade Trunked Radio System.

On May 17th, 2017 The Boone County Fiscal Court, Campbell County Consolidated Dispatch Board and Kenton County Fiscal Court awarded Motorola Solutions to design, build and implement a new 700/800 MHz P25 trunked radio system at a cost of $19,485,134. The award amount includes the system infrastructure and an eleven-year service warranty for parts, service, and software/hardware upgrades.
