The History (Cont)

  • 2006 – First regional network activated.

    • Government Technology magazine – October 2009. Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman states “We started out by setting up regional networks with the ultimate idea that we would connect the regional networks and have a statewide system.” “We brought them all together. We outlined our goals.” “We’ll take our homeland security money that is coming from the federal government and put in a statewide interoperable communications system.” “Here is the other key: We had a very successful regional project….twenty five counties got together…… a lot of barriers dropped by the wayside”.
