However, I feel it should be open for Bid. I don't believe the Chief of Police should be selling anything to his own department this goes for all city employees.
You can if the business has an Amazon store.

Oh sure order a USED Piece of Crap off EBAY. Any Radio Equipment used by Police or Fire Dept. should be Bid out. Not only for the Radio Equipment but also for Servicing the Equipment.

To begin I have nothing to do with the City of London or the Police, Fire or other city departments. I do hold a FCC License and the type of radio equipment used by Police and Fire Departments Requires a specific License with in the realm of Public Safety. You will not find these radios on sites like ebay.
It is illegal for the general public to purchase.
Scanners are a different animal, where the public can listen to broadcast but it is illegal for the general public to purchase a Police transmitter.
The same holds true with HAM Radio equipment Unless you have a HAM Radio License you cannot purchase HAM Radio Equipment and your class of license determine what you are allowed under the law to purchase.

The problem is not bidding...I don't care who gets it as long as it's bidded out fairly.

This thread is no different than those that claimed retired State Troopers were "double dipping" the system by continuing to work as sheriff's deputies. Why are people so intimidated by anyone in this county that is intelligent enough to make an honest living? These men and women, including our police chief, have every right to be successful as do you. Chief Walker has never participated in any get rich quick scams nor anything like that. What he has done is work very hard for many years building a successful business no different than any other legitimate business anywhere. He has every right to invest his money in any way that he sees fit just like you and I. There has been no hiding his business or keeping it a secret from anyone because there is nothing to hide nor keep from anyone. I wish that everyone could be fortunate enough to have multiple sources of income for their own well being. The fact of the matter is some people pass up golden opportunities to become successful and others don 't.
I am very happy for anyone that can be a success because of their own hard work and effort.

I have to disagree with you up to a point. I don't see any problem with having two careers. I don't see a problem with holding a public office and owning an unrelated separate business. I certainly don't think that Chief Walker intentionally did anything wrong.

The problem is with appearances. Too many politicians have lined their pockets at taxpayer expense! The Public is cynical and sensitive to this, so the wise Politician wouldn't put himself in the awkward position that Chief Walker finds himself.

At a minimum, Mayor Rudder and Chief Walker have both exercised poor judgement....

The London Radio business listed with The KY Secretary of State is not listed in his name. Is this the same one? Filed with the state in 2008 for a cellular tower secured by Cumberland Valley Bank?

thats the biggest bunch of BS i've ever heard. ANYbody and their grandma can get one of those fancy digital radios off of ebay or the like, tho it's probably second-hand. it's illegal to TRANSmit on a frequency you're not licensed to use. you can own any radio you want as long as you dont illegal transmit on a band you're licensed on.

You seem to act like you know everything, Walker has NEVER stated that ANY government agency they had to go to digital but only narrow band analog, I know most of the agencies in a lot of the areas. He explained it very clear and allowed US to make the decision for our self. Matter fact he provided us the means to test
both narrow band analog and digital and choose for our self, we choose digital with a analog for mutual aid events if needed. The radios we purchased at OUR request will operated in the analog and digital mode. If seems here there is a lot of speculation going on and so far I have seen nothing factual that ANYTHING wrong has been done but only a lot for accusations.
