Statewide Law Enforcement Radio System (SLERS)

Florida's Statewide Law Enforcement Radio System (SLERS) is a single, unified digital radio network that meets the radio voice communications needs of state law enforcement officers and other participating agencies throughout the state. SLERS is a 800/700 (aircraft) MHz system consisting of 200 microwave sites, RF multi-sites, and RF simulcast sites. The SLERS all-digital radio network covers over 60,000 square miles (including 25 miles offshore) with 98% mobile coverage and portable coverage in selected areas.  Under section 282.709, Florida Statutes, the Department of Management Services was tasked to implement a statewide communications system, and also created the Joint Task Force on State Agency Law Enforcement Communications that assists the Department with the planning, designing and management of the system.

The goal of the Statewide Law Enforcement Radio System (SLERS) is to provide state law enforcement personnel with a shared radio system. The current system serves over 20,500 radios in patrol cars, boats, motorcycles and aircraft throughout the State.

By providing a common communications system to state law enforcement agencies, the State achieves:

  • Effective interagency, interoperable communications;
  • Coordinated communications with local public safety entities;
  • A viable solution to radio frequency congestion;
  • Replacement of older, agency-specific systems without duplication of effort.

There are three types of partners on the network: SLERS Partners, Interoperability Partners and Affiliate Partners. To become a partner, contact Harris Corporation's Customer Advocate Nick Scardino at 407-748-4735 or email at
