 Dear PoliceOne Member,

In this month's eNews, I examine a technology from Harris Corporation which enables public safety professionals to communicate in a P25 PTT environment from a vast variety of consumer mobile devices like iPhones and tablet PCs. Karen Bune reminds us all that dispatchers are unsung heroes and a lifeline for LEOs when critical information is needed — let's remember to thank them.

Lastly, we asked you to tell us what the signs were of a seasoned dispatcher — we picked our 10 favorites. See if you agree, or add more in the comments.
