System Information

Why P25?

Scott county public safety departments went to a new P25 TRS on January 28th. The replacement of the old EDACS system comes after 20 long years and coverage issues. The system was outdated and needed to be replaced, Scott county chose a Phase II P25 TRS for many reasons including Interoperability, Inbuilding Coverage (Penetration), and encryption. As of now, all county & city fire departments remain on Nexedge VHF until March 2020. As of now, the TRS is operating on 5 tower sites until March 2020 when the sixth site is expected to be turned on completing 100% county coverage.
The full name for the system is Georgetown/Scott County - Countywide Public Safety Communications System
Radios used by all public safety departments are XG-75M's and XL-200P's. Radio Flavors & Bands differ for each agency.
