Comment Requested on NPSTC Petition for Railroad Access to Public-Safety Frequencies (6/2/14)
Monday, June 02, 2014 | Comments

The FCC requested comment on a petition for rulemaking filed by the National Public Safety Telecommunications Council (NPSTC) that asks the commission to amend its rules to enable railroad police to be eligible to license and operate on public-safety interoperability frequencies.

The NPSTC petition for rulemaking said police organizations operated by the railroads don’t fall within the eligible organizations as defined in Sections 90.20, 90.617 or 90.523 of the rules. Yet, railroad police have an increasing need for effective and expeditious communications interoperability with members of local and state law enforcement, fire and EMS organizations that do meet the FCC eligibility requirements.
