Citywide deployments of FirstNet make operations more efficient by creating seamless communication and data transfer among all response partners.
Three law enforcement officials shared with us how their citywide FirstNet deployment has been critical to ensuring everyone is informed and working together on a coordinated response. When I worked for the Phoenix Police Department, we had to create a dedicated radio channel to communicate with the fire department alone. These three agencies are using FirstNet to connect with multiple response partners.
