FEATURED IN PUBLIC SAFETY COMMUNICATIONS
What will public safety communications look like in the year 2030? Will law enforcement personnel have access to master databases containing every bit of personal data on the public at large? Will dispatch cease to exist at central comm centers and instead be in pods located throughout the community? Will businesses and housing developments contract for their own public safety services?
We’d like to hear your ideas. The winning entry, chosen by the editors of Public Safety Communications and APCO, will receive a $150 American Express gift certificate and will be published in an upcoming issue of PSC.
Please submit your one-paragraph entry via e-mail to PSCeditor@apcointl.org by July 26 or in person at the APCO Pavillion on site at the conference by the time the exhibit hall closes on Monday, Aug. 2, 2010. Be sure to include your contact information (name, title, agency, city, state, phone, e-mail) with your entry. Mark your entry "Space-Age Communications Competition."
The winner will be chosen at noon Tuesday, Aug. 3, in the APCO Pavilion. (You do not need to be present to win.) Even if you haven't submitted an entry, be sure to be there. … You'll definitely want to get the "space-age" details of the future of communications.
