Hamilton Upgrades Police Radio System

Hamilton may be enjoying historic lows in crime, but that is not stopping Mercer County’s largest town (by population) from continuing to invest in tools to help its Police keep the community safe.

Hamilton Township Mayor Kelly Yaede, who also serves as the community’s Director of Public Safety, has announced that the Hamilton Police Division has begun using a new, upgraded radio system.  The new communications system replaces an older system that had grown obsolete. 

“For our dedicated police officers to continue the outstanding work that they do to keep our community safe, we must provide them with the necessary tools – such as this upgraded radio system – so they can continue to protect and serve our citizens,” says Mayor Yaede.   

The new system was provided by Motorola Solutions, which also provides the equipment through State Government contracts, and was approved last year through Hamilton’s Capital Budget for long-term assets.     

According to the police, the new, upgraded system is already working well.

“The radio system we had was obsolete.  This upgraded system has vastly improved the quality of radio communications and was a top priority as much needed equipment for our Police Division to perform their duties in a safe and effective manner,” says Chief James W. Collins.

“The PBA is extremely happy with the quality of the new radio system and would like to thank Chief Collins, Mayor Yaede, and Town Council for making this system a top priority and implementing it,” says PBA Local 66 President Michael P. Kane.
