The Utah Communications Authority, through its P25 Division, works to establish a statewide Project 25 compliant radio system for Public Safety agencies.

Project 25 (P25) was formed in 1990 in accordance with an agreement between the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials (APCO), the National Association of State Technology Directors (NASTD), and agencies of the U.S. federal government.  Project 25 is a unique user-driven process that works with equipment manufacturers to establish current and emerging wireless Land Mobile Radio (LMR) communication standards that meet the requirements of the public safety community.

Today, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate leads the congressionally legislated P25 Compliance Assessment Program and supports SAFECOM recommendations related to emergency communication standards development.

The P25 Division staff is ready and willing to work with all public safety stakeholders so that they can take advantage of radio technology with standardized protocols as UCA upgrades their legacy radio system.  Please feel free to contact the P25 Division if you have any questions regarding the radio system upgrade.
