Florida’s Statewide Law Enforcement Radio System (SLERS) weathered two major hurricanes, operating successfully during Hurricanes Charley and Frances, according to M/A-COM, which supplied the network. The company said SLERS operated continuously throughout the storms, while local systems and cellular networks failed. The statewide 800MHz system, the result of collaboration between 14 state agencies, is scheduled to be completed in 2005 and is expected to save the state of Florida about $622 million over 20 years.
