Police digital radio expands into Pilbara

​The Pilbara coast is the latest to benefit from the $94.5 million roll-out of the Community Safety Regional Radio Network, made possible by the State Government’s Royalties for Regions Program.

The project brings together WA Police and Corrective Services under one common infrastructure allowing for better communication and coordination during an emergency.

Regional Development Minister Terry Redman said the benefits of the project were invaluable to the State’s emergency services and will potentially save lives by allowing for improved responses in emergency situations.

“The Pilbara joins a list of other regional centres, including the Goldfields and Mid-West, to reap the benefits of converting to a more modern, digital system,” Mr Redman said.

“I am pleased to see Royalties for Regions funding contributing to significant improvements to the lives of people living, working and travelling in our State’s vast regional areas.”
