Our mission is to manage the Digital Trunked Radio System for public safety radio operability and interoperability among first responders across Colorado to better serve our citizens.
The Consolidated Communications Network of Colorado, Inc. (CCNC) is the user and managing organization of the Statewide Digital Trunked Radio System Network (DTRS). The State of Colorado began discussions with local governments in 1992 on a wide area system that users could utilize as primary communications or for inter-agency communications. Plans were developed but funding in the early 1990's became the issue.
Today’s DTR System began to truly evolve in 2001 where it grew from a shared system between two counties. The Statewide Digital Trunked Radio System today is a standards based (APCO Project 25) radio system and currently has several different manufacturers producing tiered radio solutions for the user community. The DTR System is a tremendous example of a successful State and Local technical project. CCNC is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) corporation founded in 2002.
