Week 9: Writing/Research #4; Communications Interoperability

Communications Interoperability:

Abundant anecdotal evidence shows that units from two or more law enforcement agencies engaged in a joint operation (such as a high-speed pursuit) frequently cannot communicate directly with each other.  This inability to communicate may result from the use of different radio frequencies, varying and proprietary protocols or system architectures, or operational constraints. A variety of technologies are now available to help resolve this problem.
