The National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA) represents the 3,086 Sheriffs of the United States and has more than 20,000 members. The NSA advocates for policies that will the improve the quality of service to its constituents.  NSA supports the Don’t Break Up the T-Band Act (H.R. 5085) introduced by Representatives Elliot Engel, Lee Zeldin, and Peter King.

Many of the Shefiffs we represent will be impacted by the auctioning of the T-Band. Mission critical voice operations and interoperability wth other law enforcement, fire service, EMS, and emergency management services are critical elements of public safety.  The NSA is united with other public safety organization behind the desire to see H.R. 5085 succeed and we will continue to fight for public safety’s access to the best available technology to keep the public safe
