 Dear P1 Member

Welcome to the final Communications eNews for 2012. This year was an eventful one for news related to public safety communications technologies and trends, and today’s issue is no different.

Michelle Perin examines an interoperable communications solution you can use today, while FirstNet continues to evolve into a tangible, usable platform sometime in coming years. Tim Dees looks at Smartphone security, focusing on programs that can increase and decrease the safety and privacy we take for granted.

Lastly, I offer my view on what I believe to be the most important single news event of 2012. Let me know if you agree.
