Many of you have already heard of the untimely passing of our friend and colleague Tom Sorley who passed away this last weekend of a heart attack. Tom was one of those who spent his career going the extra mile in service to his profession, public safety communications. He was one of the most committed, respected and knowledgeable individuals in public safety technology. For those who didn’t know Tom here is a short list of those things he did outside his normal work as the Deputy CIO / Deputy Director, Public Safety for the City of Houston.
NPSTC (National Public Safety Telecommunications Council) – Chair of the Technology Committee
PSAC (FirstNet Public Safety Advisory Board) – Chair
APCO (Association of Public Safety Communications Officials) – Life Member
One thing we can say is that no one person can fill the gap that has been created. It will take several skilled and committed people to step into those shoes. “Thank you, Tom, for all you have done over the years. Your commitment did not go unnoticed and you will be missed”.
