What does the future of mobile look like in public safety? I recently posed this question to public safety technology and communications leaders at this year’s APCO Annual Conference & Expo.

Here’s what a few of the people I spoke with had to say.

  • “I see the future as a place where our first responders don’t need to think about what devices they have on them. They just do their jobs effectively and protect our communities.” –Ana Ossa, Verizon
  • “I think the future of mobile communications is in convergence.” –Jason Karp, founder and principal, The Public Safety Network
  • “It’s [about] protecting our data. It’s all of our partner data, [and] it’s all of the citizen’s data of the country or city we’re protecting.” –John Whitehead, Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure
