CCMS is providing Program Management Services to the City in connection with establishing a Consolidated P25 Compliant Radio System for Police Department and Emergency Services.
In January of 2001, the Jersey City Police Department hired CCMS to evaluate their existing radio communications system, develop a system plan for their short term and long term needs, and then to evaluate the options for an upgrade or replacement of that system, including provisions for a city-wide system.
CCMS completed the evaluation, known as Phase I and submitted a comprehensive report to the City in May 2001. Additionally, CCMS developed and implemented a radio frequency acquisition strategy resulting in the successful filing of FCC waivers for the needed frequencies. CCMS then assisted the City in development of funding for this project, and was successful in obtaining federal funding for the majority of the system costs.
In Phase II, CCMS managed the Design and Procurement for the new digital trunked communications system that provides interoperability for all the City Public Safety and Public Service Agencies. Phase III for the Implementation is currently underway.
