    Default Former San Angelo Police Chief Indicted for Bribery

    A federal grand jury has indicted Timothy Vasquez, the former Chief of Police of San Angelo, Texas on one count of "receipt of a bribe by an agent of an organization receiving federal funds" and three counts of "honest services mail fraud." This in relation to Vasquez's alleged receipt of over $130,000 in bribes from the city's radio system vendor dating back to 2007.

    From the Department of Justice's press release:

    "According to the indictment, Mr. Vasquez allegedly used his official position to help a radio system vendor land two government contracts worth more than $11 million. In return, the vendor and its affiliates allegedly funneled him and his band, “Funky Munky,” more than $130,000."

    The two entities that paid the alleged bribes were Juniper Valley, L.P. and Trixie & Fini, L.P. According to Texas state records, they share the mailing address and the same directors as Dailey & Wells, one of the larger Harris dealers in the United States.

    I'm interested to know if there was any legal action taken against the radio vendor. I would expect their actions were illegal as well.

    I was kind of hoping it was Motorola, but yes, a quick search on RR for that city shows a former EDACS system, and their new P25 system has a System ID of 00A, which is Harris. Sucks to be Harris.

    Motorola knows better than to leave cheque stubs lying around.

    you could tell it wasn't Motorola when the guy got indicted ....too much influence to let that happen.
    rookie mission all the way around

    still working for a major vendor( not radio ) and we have all kinds of internal safe guards against that kind of BS even through our sales and delivery partners.

    I've mentioned the shitbag Gary Kimmerle and what a jerk and AH he is here on the forum in the past. He works for Dailey-Wells and is fairly high up on the food chain in the sales department... Lets hope he's part of it!

    Isn't the Motorola system building P25 systems in North America?

    The two largest(site count and sq. km of coverage) P25 trunk systems in North America are Harris built.

    In American films, all cops are only from Motorola. Marketing?

    Yup. On the one P25 network(Alberta) there are a wide array of subscribers in use. Harris, Kenwood, EFJ, Tait, BK and Motorola.

    In the Cockpit Scene in the movie Airplane, you will notice the microphones used are Motorola. It was product placement of a smaller version of the classic Mike that was newly introduced for the Moxy and Radius radios.

    Check your entry permit and the State Prison website for show times.
    Apparently NOT a radio professional.

    PPSTN in Saskatchewan and AFRRCS in Alberta.

    Edit. After doing some looking, there are a few systems with more radios sites than PPSTN.
