The microwave antenna has been installed at the new Bethel Police Department Tower and on the Spring Hill Tower. Town officials say this device will improve Public Safety communications for Bethel's Police, Fire, EMS, and Department of Public Works. The old system relies on phone lines from the Police Department's Dispatch Center to the main tower and frequently needed repairs. Officials say the new system, which will go live when officers move in to the new police station, has about a 99.9-percent reliability rate.
