This webinar explores ways to apply a cybersecurity framework to the Next Generation 9-1-1 world. 

Sponsored by Comtech Safety & Security Technologies


Experience the emergency communications center of the future from the moment a 9-1-1 call comes in. Nexus, taking place virtually May 26-27, will provide an inside look into how NG9-1-1 technology can help 9-1-1 professionals respond to a variety of real-life scenarios — including a motor vehicle crash, multiple tornados, hazmat incident, structure fire, vehicle pursuit and cyber/physical attack. Registration is $49 for members and attendees will earn 9 CDEs.

APCO will also host the Public Safety Communications Leadership in Policy Awards virtually on May 26. The event is free for all. Visit the website to check out this year’s winners and register to attend the awards ceremony.


The deadline to submit your design for the APCO 2021 T-shirt contest is this Monday! If you are an artist or designer we want you to create our next conference shirt. We're looking for an original design that incorporates the host city San Antonio and/or the state of Texas, and the spirit of APCO International and emergency communications.
