Nebraska - Good Life. Great Opportunity

The Public Safety Communications Team stays informed on the latest radio system technologies to offer additional services that complement the communications needs of our customers. Here are a few of the new services that are in various stages of development. Contact the Public Safety Communications Team for more information.

  • WAVE 5000 System: This service extends the Statewide Radio System to smartphones, laptops, and desktop computers. If internet connectivity is available, users can communicate from anywhere in the world.
  • Deployable Communications Resources: The Public Safety Communications team has developed some deployable assets that can enhance communications coverage for temporary events and incidents.
    • DK I: Deployable Kit-type 1: VHF mobile radio in a small, transportable case with a magnetic mount antenna, 12V vehicle accessory plug, programmed with SRS trunked "talk groups" and VTAC interop frequencies.
    • DK II: Deployable Kit-type 2: A DK I kit with an 800 MHz repeater. This enables 800 MHz portable radios to access selected SRS trunked "talk groups"
    • Site on Wheels (SOW): This is a mobile, VHF SRS trunked site with a 90’ guyed tower, that can be towed with a medium-sized pickup truck. It includes a shelter and a 10 kW diesel generator. The SOW is used for longer-term events, due to the deployment and operations requirements.
  • Text Messaging: This is a new service available for Motorola radios that allows users to text message each other with their radios.
  • Logger Recording: This is a service that is available for agencies that need to record their radio traffic.
  • Customized Radio User Reporting: The Public Safety Communications team uses specialized reporting tools that can create customized reporting to meet your agency requirements.
