Wireless Systems

Guiding principles of the Unit are the prudent management of State wireless assets, maintenance of strong partnerships and institutionalization of planning and implementation processes and procedures.  The Unit provides radio frequency coordination for state and local agencies, innovative and cost effective IT wireless security strategies, and the mobile devices and services  statewide policy for cellular telephones and services.
