“With its unique expertise in public safety communications, APCO is determined to play a major leadership role in supporting the development of a diverse, practitioner-driven public safety app ecosystem fostered through the collaborative efforts of public safety professionals, the technology industry, and app developers. APCO designed AppComm.org, its online Application Community, to facilitate this collaboration by serving as the single, trusted site where public safety professionals, the general public, and app developers can discuss and rate apps, identify unmet needs, and submit ideas for new apps. These features in turn will support our standards development efforts and allow us to foster innovation driven by public safety’s needs.”
