The Oakland Police Department Radios do not always work properly, with officers unable to communicate.

On 12/6/13, the Oakland Tribune reported:

"A city-commissioned report released Friday from RSS Consultants recommends that Oakland replace its fleet of 2,700 radios "as soon as possible." The replacement cost is estimated between $15 million and $20 million.

City leaders said they were committed to upgrading the radios and planned to enter talks to disband its city-run radio system and join a regional radio network that includes nearly every East Bay city."
