"In 2011 Polk County completed an RFP process, which investigated the options of purchasing a radio system or continuing with our current vendor. Polk County has had a public private partnership with RACOM for around 20 years. Our review of the proposals and the comparison of the expenses led Polk County to choose to continue with our leasing partnership. RACOM is providing exceptional service at a cost that is significantly less than if Polk County purchased and maintained its own system. Polk County Deputies transport people throughout the state, and the availability of RACOM’s statewide network has been a bonus."
