Upcoming Technical Assistance Activities
  • Issue Briefs
    • SEARCH has authored a series of issue briefs to assist our ICTP grantees with difficult interoperable communications issues
    • Examples include Project 25 compliant systems, training and exercises, building a regional communications planning, performance measurement, ICS, etc.
  • Training DVD
    • SEARCH will produce a Training DVD to complement the Interoperability Tech Guide
    • It will present keys to success for interoperability projects using self-directed or automatic chapter selection
    • Five ICTP projects funded by COPS will be profiled as case studies
    • Approximately 2,000 DVDs will be producedinitially
ictp assessment
ICTP Assessment
  • COPS has awarded a cooperative agreement to ILJ, a non-profit research organization.
  • ICTP Assessment Goals:
    • Develop a survey to assess all ICTP grantees
    • Focus on project implementation, identifying pitfalls and success stories
    • Three “deliverables” from the assessment:
      • Report to COPS on success of projects, plus feedback regarding how to improve future public safety interoperability grant programs
      • Some project case studies suitable for distribution to other Executive Branch agencies and Congress
      • A publication suitable for the entire public safety community that describes best practices and lessons learned from ICTP projects
