The Department of Technology, Management and Budget (DTMB) has partnered with Harris Communications to expand the technology behind the Public Safety Communications System (PSCS). The goal of the partnership is to provide local emergency services with options for local communications while still allowing them to connect to the statewide system.

“No single emergency communications system – no matter how large or complex – can meet its communications challenges alone,” Brad Stoddard, director of the PSCS, said in a statement. “Today’s systems demand new partnerships, achieving together what no one organization can accomplish alone.”
