Dear PoliceOne Member,

A landmark piece of legislation — dubbed S.911: Public Safety Spectrum and Wireless Innovation Act of 2011 — is now moving forward toward a vote in the full Senate that would enable it to be signed it into law by the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. There is still a long way to go, but a D-Block allocation to public safety is inching closer to being reality. Check out our coverage, and stand by for the call to action which is sure to come from IACP, PSA, and other organizations working toward this goal in coming months.
