Input sought from subject matter experts for the California Radio Interoperable System (CRIS)

Complete survey before July 22

In Fiscal Year 2019-20 the California Legislature approved a proposal by the California Office of Emergency Services (CalOES) to construct the California Radio Interoperable System (CRIS) to serve the communications needs of the State’s public safety agencies.  
 
Over the course of the past two years, CalOES has leveraged the support and input from multiple state agencies/stakeholders to make substantial progress in deploying the system.  Today, the system includes 26 operational sites dispersed throughout the state and over the course of calendar year 2021, an additional 20 sites will be installed.  
 
Initial planning has begun with partners such as Los Angeles Regional Interoperable Communication System and Sacramento Regional Radio Communications System to extend the capability with system-to-system interconnection.  CalOES has established a secure interface between CRIS and the Critical Connect interoperability platform and stands ready to make interconnections with other regional interoperability systems.
 
CalOES knows that for the CRIS project to be fully successful, the system must dramatically improve interoperability amongst the 38 individual public safety agencies as well as meeting their other communications needs.  
 
In that regard, CalOES is seeking input from the Public Safety Radio Strategic Planning committee (PSRSPC) and California State Interoperability Executive Committee members through the following linked survey:

CalOES is requesting your input prior to the Thursday, July 22, 2021 PSRSPC/CalSIEC meeting.
 
CalOES will continue to push for the highest achievable goal for interoperability. To accomplish this goal CalOES needs your support and input.
