Nearly 700,000 people call Washington, D.C. their home, and our great city welcomes more than 22 million visitors annually. Including our residents, workers, and tourists, our daily population easily swells to 2 million. Our bustling city, the seat of the U.S. Federal Government, is home to some of the most notable U.S. tourist attractions and hosts many national commemorations and other major events.
D.C. Office of Unified Communications
Working behind the scenes to keep our nation’s capital humming is the Office of Unified Communications (OUC), serving as the District of Columbia’s emergency communications lifeline. Every day, OUC is responsible for providing and maintaining the best public safety communication network, infrastructure, and equipment for the Metropolitan Police Department, D.C. Fire and Emergency Medical Services Department, and 27 other law enforcement agencies.
The OUC is dedicated to keeping the nation’s capital safe and connected, and I am proud to serve as the agency’s director. We are trailblazers and continue to set the standard for emergency communications. In fact, over the years, we’ve led the charge in the National Capital Region, in the implementation of many solutions that are being deployed nationwide.
We’re constantly adopting new technology that enables us to adapt to and address evolving community needs. We understand that keeping up with the changes to technology will help us operate more effectively and efficiently – meeting stakeholders where they are and ensuring that the link to public safety is reliable.
