The Hancock County Sheriff’s Office is looking to upgrade its radio dispatch console. Sheriff Michael Heldman said that the current console has issues…

The console currently runs both the jail doors and dispatch radios. Heldman said that this system intermingling is another problem. The AVTEC system they are looking to buy will separate the two systems.

Heldman said that they have an offer that will save money.

Heldman explained that the entire system would cost $470,000. Since the system being offered is already programmed the cost is only $366,000.

The Hancock County Commissioners will have to approve the transaction but made no action yet.
