COPURS is an eleven-site, 800 MHz Harris P25 Simulcast system being implemented by the Peoria County ETSB. There are 700 MHz frequencies licensed for use, but not as simulcast frequencies.

Site work and tower footings are in process for the six new COPURS tower sites. The other five simulcast sites are located on existing vertical real estate.

Field coverage testing should be in Fall of 2013. The first public safety agencies will transition to COPURS after that testing is complete and successful. The Emergency Telephone System Board (ETSB) anticipates most public safety agencies in Peoria County will migrate to this system during 2014.
