About MPSCS

Beginning in mid-1990, the State of Michigan made a significant investment in its infrastructure that provides statewide radio communication for first responders. While Michigan’s Public Safety Communications System (MPSCS) was first implemented to serve the Michigan State Police, that scope expanded. In recent years, the Departments of Natural Resources and Transportation also have become reliant on the system.

MPSCS provides a stable, secure framework for interoperable communications among local, state, federal, tribal and private first responders and supplies a public safety communication resource for citizens. Through its employees, MPSCS handles the second-largest trunked communication system in the world, including administration of a statewide 800/700 MHz digital trunked radio communication network. As of October 2017 the system spans 59,415 square miles, has 253 radio towers and includes more than 84,000 radios.

The system is at the forefront of public safety communications. It provides rapid response and facilitates cooperation of emergency personnel through statewide coverage and advanced technology. It is a reliable, easy-to-use system that adheres to national standards. System operation is monitored 24 hours a day to ensure its readiness to assist Michigan’s first responders.
