About the Digital Radio Network
Digital radio communication is a critical tool for Victoria’s community safety, enabling police and emergency service agencies to coordinate and respond quickly and effectively to threats of terrorism, bushfires, floods and emergencies.
The Victorian government started investing in dedicated digital radio networks for police and emergency services in 2004, with the technology continuing as the sectors only means of in-field voice communication that achieves international public safety standards for network coverage, capacity and availability.
The Digital Radio Upgrade Program (DRUP) was a six year, $46.9M initiative responsible for delivering digital radio services to Victoria Police, Victoria State Emergency Service (VICSES), Life Saving Victoria (LSV), Corrections Victoria and Country Fire Authority (CFA).
LSV continues to work with our partners to deliver the Digital Radio Upgrade Project (DRUP) to provide volunteers and professional lifeguards with access to public safety grade radio communications. The project transitioned approximately 68 sites to the new technology Victoria wide and provide an improved radio network for all Emergency Services.
