As of March, 2013, 153 communications sites are on the air. More than 60,000 device IDs (56,000 radios) from 2,027 Local, State, and Federal agencies in all 92 Indiana counties are entered in the SAFE-T System database. In addition to the original 126-site plan, the SAFE-T buildout map now includes sites contributed by counties as well as sites built with federal grant dollars. These additions translate to wider and more reliable coverage for Hoosier first responders.
With its first mission accomplished, Indiana is moving into the next generation of public safety communications: integrated public safety data sharing. The state is currently is currently deploying a statewide multi-agency, multi-jurisdiction police, fire and EMS computer aided dispatch (CAD) and records management system (RMS).
Implementation of the project is similar to that of the voice system – the state will provide the infrastructure and central server systems; user agencies will own, operate and manage the daily use of CAD/RMS applications. After initial deployment and testing in the Indiana State Police dispatch centers across the state, the system will be made available to local agencies.
