Public Safety Partner Feedback

Public Safety Communication System End-User Questionnaire

The process of planning for the next Cumberland County Public Safety Radio Network (CCPSRN) is underway. Presentations started almost a year ago with the Board of Commissioners approval of the concept for the Department of Public Safety to begin engaging all of our stakeholders and preparing for the upcoming Radio Communication Systems Project.  From there our Public Safety Management Team met with the Municipal Advisory Board, Police Chiefs, EMS Chiefs, Fire Chiefs, Fire Police and County Departments to deliver the message.  We are now at the stage to start the information gathering.

Cumberland County has entered into contract with Mike Browne, Principal Consultant for Safety Security Communication (SSC), Inc.  Mr. Browne will assist the Department of Public Safety in an unbiased and transparent process that will end in a recommendation for the Board of Commissioners to consider.

Below you will find a link to the questionnaire seeking input from first responders and other stakeholders.  Please take a moment to complete the survey.  The deadline to complete the questionnaire and return via email to SSC, Inc. Mike Browne is Monday, March 20, 2017 by 5:00pm.

End-User Questionnaire

In addition to the questionnaire, the Department of Public Safety is hosting four sessions across the County in an effort to afford as many agencies as possible the opportunity to participate in the process.  It is recommended that each agency or group limit representation to two attendees.  By providing the survey ahead of time, it will allow representatives to come prepared with questions and ensure a productive session.  It is only necessary to attend one of these sessions.  The goal is to keep sessions to no more than two hours.
