All of us at APCO International send our thoughts and prayers to those affected by the senseless act of terrorism in Orlando. We grieve for the victims, their families and their friends. Our heartfelt thanks go out to the many law enforcement, emergency medical, fire service and emergency management professionals for their efforts both during the initial response and as the investigation proceeds. To the public safety telecommunications professionals at the Orlando Police Department, Orange County Sheriff's Office, Orlando Fire Department, Orange County Fire/Rescue and all the assisting agencies, your hard work, dedication and tireless efforts are appreciated and valued by your fellow professionals nationwide – especially during these most tragic of days.
