Public Safety Data Sharing Initiative

As public safety embraces the wireless communications revolution with services like Public Safety Broadband, it creates an abundance of possibilities for real-time data sharing that can help first responders address whatever situation they are facing in a collaborative way. There’s only one catch; there are numerous local, state, and federal laws that dictate what data can be shared by whom and how it gets shared. When you have ad-hoc responses involving multiple agencies, the necessary agreements are not always in place to ensure data is shared properly.

The goal of the Data Sharing Initiative is to work with local, regional, state, and federal jurisdictions and agencies to help create data sharing relationships to ensure the proper data can be shared as authorized in a timely manner.
