There were limited service delays Wednesday when the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department experienced technical problems with its radio system, an official said.

At 2 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 25, glitches began affecting the radio system for the west county area,  according to sheriff’s Deputy Albert Martinez.

“During this incident, we immediately switched to a back-up system which allowed radio service to continue with minimal effects to patrol operations,” Martinez said. “...Technicians immediately began working on correcting the issue. Non-priority calls had limited delay and all calls for service were handled.”

By 4 p.m. Wednesday, the system was back to normal operation.

The widespread technical issue followed an initial glitch at about 3:10 a.m. Wednesday that affected deputies from the Hemet sheriff’s station. That problem had been fixed within minutes, with no effect on patrol operations, according to Martinez.
