Colorado Division of Telecommunications hosted a statewide radio project forum exploring the needs of a statewide trunked radio system.



A detailed project plan was published outlining the standards and user needs.



Arapahoe, Jefferson, and Douglas Counties along with the City of Aurora and the State of Colorado created a CCS (Combined Communications System) M.O.U. for interconnecting their systems.


Douglas and Jefferson Counties install an APCO 16 combined digital trunked radio system with over 3,000 users on 8 sites.


  • State of Colorado initiates a pilot test of Metro Denver radio users for State of Colorado using the Douglas - Jefferson Counties system.
  • State of Colorado completes the pilot and a multi-year and multi-phase effort is initiated based on Douglas - Jefferson Counties system.


  • State of Colorado purchases APCO 25 project system using two zones for statewide radio capability. Statewide user meetings begin.
  • State of Colorado zones, site equipment, and subscriber units delivered for initial phases.


  • Eastern Colorado zone installed and existing users on APCO 16 system converted to APCO 25 system.
  • Arapahoe County, Adams County, and Weld County radio systems integrate into the DTRS.
  • Northern Colorado Regional Communications (NCRCN) radio system integrates into the system.


  • Western Colorado subscribers added in Montrose.


  • Third zone controller added through multiagency Homeland Security Grant funding for increased capacity for eastern Colorado radio sites and wire-line dispatch center connectivity.
  • Network First IP interoperability gateway integrated into DTRS for interoperability with the Denver, Denver International Airport, Aurora, Lakewood, and Arvada EDACS radio systems.


  • First to implement a 700 MHz and 800 MHz combined system in the US.


  • First to successfully complete a statewide 800 MHz rebanding of sites and subscriber equipment.


  • Pikes Peak Regional Communications Network integrates into the system as the fourth zone.


  • Successful test pilot of ISSI with the state of Wyoming’s VHF WYOLINK radio system.
  • Official discussions begin to explore the use of ISSI interface to allow interoperability and possible coverage extension with the State of Kansas Mutual Aid System and the Denver radio system.

2013- Present

  • Upgrades to system version 7.x
  • ISSI Implementation between Motorola and Harris cores; Cassidian core in the development stage
  • ISSI replaces the NetworkFirst interface
  • Replacement of aging backhaul equipment

Sites - 239
Zone Controllers - 5
Radio Identifiers - 100,000+
Total User Agencies - 1000+

Approximate number of monthly transmits on the system: 9 million

The 239 antenna sites are spread across the state and divided between the five zone controllers.

The State of Colorado has been divided into Mutual Aid Channel (MAC) Regions for interoperability in regional areas.
