- By Edward Parkinson, FirstNet Authority CEO
The First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet Authority) is saddened to learn of the passing of Assistant Sheriff Raymond Flynn (Ret.) of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. We extend our thoughts and prayers to Ray’s family and friends.
Ray dedicated his life to public service and helping others. He was a nationally recognized leader on public safety communications issues, and is considered a founding member of the FirstNet Authority family through his work on the Public Safety Alliance and FirstNet’s Public Safety Advisory Committee.
FirstNet owes much of its success today to people like Ray, whose tenacity and hard work as an advocate for public safety led to the establishment of the nationwide public safety broadband network.
The FirstNet Authority will miss Ray and remember the legacy he leaves behind for public safety every day.
