The Los Angeles Police Department, one of the biggest police departments in the country, is modernizing its communications and issuing FirstNet devices to all of its almost 10,000 officers. Through FirstNet’s reliable and secure connection, officers will be able to spend less time at the station doing paperwork and more time in the field with their community.
FirstNet is advancing public safety in Tennessee by providing tools and resources that keep first responders connected when they experience outages. The Cell Booster Pro, an enterprise grade miniature cell-site, increases in-building coverage and the AT&T ESinet offers a wireless back-up network for when 9-1-1 centers face connection disruptions.
The only nationwide public safety broadband network, FirstNet, which was created in 2012 is celebrating a decade of public safety accomplishments. Tom Shull, FirstNet’s Director of Legislative Affairs, details some of FirstNet’s major accomplishments throughout the years and provides insight on the future of the organization and it’s continued plans to advance public safety.
