The Chilton County 911 District was recently named a recipient of an equipment grant from the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency.
Chilton County 911 was awarded a $23,344.40 grant to purchase interoperable 700 MHz digital radios.
The new radios will allow public safety agencies in Chilton County to communicate more effectively with neighboring counties, according to director Dan Wright.
This is a tremendous step forward in moving toward a public safety rated digital communications platform. Our neighboring jurisdictions are moving toward 700 MHz this will provide interoperability with them and resources statewide as needed. We thank ALEA for this opportunity and the review panel for our award. -- Dan Wright, 9-1-1 Director
