From Harford County government:
WASHINGTON, DC – On Thursday, February 18, U.S. Senator Barbara A. Mikulski and Congressman Frank Kratovil (both D-Md.) will join Harford County Executive David Craig and members of Harford County’s Emergency Operations Center to announce a major new federal investment in Harford County’s public safety communications technology project.
The project will equip Harford’s first responders with new technology that will allow them to communicate in a safe, seamless and compatible way. The improved technology will help Harford’s first responders enhance security, share information and save lives.
The event will culminate in a tour of Harford’s Emergency Operations Center, which serves a population of nearly 240,000 people, and responds to emergencies within a 450 square mile area.

Does this affect the Sheriff’s Office or just Fire/EMTs? And what exactly is this new technology?
Hopefully whatever it is it works better than the over-sized paperweights they put in the patrol cars…
Craig is taking a federal earmark which is why we are close to 2 trillion dollars in debt.
