SEARCH Chairman Francis X. Aumand III has named Information Sharing Specialist Bonnie Maney to serve as SEARCH’s representative to the FirstNet Public Safety Advisory Committee (PSAC).
The Committee is comprised of 40 representatives of national organizations that are key leaders on public safety communications and interoperability issues. They will provide input and expertise to the FirstNet Board in support of its critical mission: to build, deploy, and operate a nationwide interoperable public safety broadband network. (See sidebar.)
PSAC stakeholders come from public safety, emergency management, transportation, telecommunications, homeland security, government, and justice organizations at the national, state, territorial and tribal levels—and also include members of SAFECOM, another public safety advisory body.
SEARCH Chairman Francis X. Aumand III has appointed Phillip Stevenson, Ph.D., Director of the Arizona Statistical Analysis Center (SAC), as an At-Large representative to the SEARCH Membership Group.
The appointment was made January 1, 2013, and will run through December 31, 2014.
“I am pleased Dr. Stevenson has agreed to join the SEARCH Membership as an At-Large appointee,” said Chairman Aumand. “With his experience and knowledge of evidence-based practices in the justice system, he will bring a beneficial perspective to the deliberations of the Membership.”
