Andy Seybold’s Public Safety Intelligence, December 27, 2013

As you might expect, this is a very light news week for Public Safety. Those who are on duty are working, those who are on vacation are, hopefully, enjoying the Holidays, and those in the Government who make some of the news are home with their families for the most part.
2014 should be a great year for FirstNet and the Nationwide Public Safety Broadband Network (NPSBN). I am looking forward to FirstNet making an enormous amount of progress. The staffing level is just about complete and I expect that a lot of progress will be made this coming year.  Happy New Year to all of our subscribers, may it be profitable and safe for all!
