 Dear Member

We're back from APCO 2013, where we learned about some of latest news and updates about police communications. In this edition of Comms eNews, we feature our visit with Motorola, where we saw some of their new technology demonstrated, as well as news that Mutualink might be offering the first public safety app when Google Glass becomes available.

We also have our report on the FCC's rebanding concerns, their spectrum policy update, and a synopsis of how they're working to improve 911 texting services.

In coming issues of Comms eNews, we'll have other features on new technologies we discovered last week in Anaheim.
