Moot at this point

While I agree with the planning ahead, it seems that OK has their reasons for doing it the way they decided to do it. However, being in law enforcement myself, I would much rather ATT shut down a few towers, than to have interference in communications, that could make all the difference in life or death situation. When I or any officer needs assistance, I don't want there to be a delay in communications or simply unable to communicate at all.

ATT, Oakland and the vendor of the new police communication system can work out those issues at some point in the near future. As far as we know, this could be what they are planning to do anyway. Besides, ATT has already stated that the shutdown of these towers shouldn't affect the overall usage of their system.
