DHS has moved the P25 CAP Advisory Panel (AP) under the SAFECOM governance structure, which is managed by the DHS Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). This transition provides P25 CAP activities with a broader audience via SAFECOM users, and leverages the legislative authority that SAFECOM maintains in support of emergency communications. The current AP membership will remain the same with the P25 CAP Task Force. This transition only involves the AP changing to a SAFECOM Task Force. There are no changes to P25 CAP at large, which remains under DHS S&T.
For additional information on the SAFECOM P25 CAP Task Force, please contact SAFECOMGovernance@hq.dhs.gov.
