First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) Chair Edward Horowitz named Richard Stanek vice chair of the FirstNet Board, effective immediately.

Stanek has served on the FirstNet board since 2014 and served on the board’s Public Safety Advocacy Committee, where he helped strengthen relationships with the nation’s law enforcement community.

“It is a great honor to be named vice chair of the FirstNet Board,” said Stanek. “I am extremely proud of the work that we have done for public safety, and I am excited about what the future holds for FirstNet. I look forward to working with Ed and the board and the dedicated FirstNet team as we continue to engage with and innovate for the nation’s first responders.”

Stanek, a 35-year veteran of law enforcement, serves as sheriff of Hennepin County, Minnesota. In addition to being on the FirstNet board, Stanek serves in a number of leadership roles with national and state law enforcement associations. This includes serving as the vice president of the National Sheriff’s Association (NSA) and the chair of the NSA’s Homeland Security Committee. Stanek is also vice president, homeland security, for the Major County Sheriffs of America.

“Having a public-safety leader like Sheriff Stanek in the vice chair role is valuable to the board, to the FirstNet organization and to the public-safety community as we work to implement the network,” Horowitz said. “We have worked closely together on the board over the last three years and look forward to continuing to drive FirstNet forward for public safety.”
