Located in central Ohio, Holmes County's nearly 40,000 residents include the nation's largest Amish and Mennonite community. It wanted better technology that would improve the safety and efficiency of his crew, as well as reduce costs for the department. The local Motorola Channel Partner proposed MOTOTRBO digital radios with built-in GPS capability.
