photo-digital-radios-1Neptune: In an ongoing commitment to public safety, Sheriff Shaun Golden and the Board of Chosen Freeholders recently met with EMS agencies who received new digital trunk radios. This upgraded technology allows first responders, who are dispatched through the Monmouth County 9-1-1 Communications Center, to communicate with each other throughout the county in a more efficient manner.

“The new digital radios will allow our partners in EMS, dispatched from the Monmouth County 9-1-1 Communications Center, to communicate with one another most effectively, and, enable first responders to coordinate with others in surrounding areas, through interoperability, particularly during large scale incidents,” said Sheriff Shaun Golden. “This effort reflects our dedication to guarding critical infrastructures and maintaining the safety of our residents in Monmouth County.”
