Public Safety

Day in and day out our nation’s police, fire, emergency medical services, and other public safety personnel put themselves in harm’s way to protect the communities they serve. For first responders, effective communications can mean the difference between life and death. PSCR works collaboratively with the public safety community to identify technology requirements that are critical to advancing communications capabilities that will enable first responders to more effectively carry out their mission.
