The Code of Virginia (§2.2-2031) establishes that the PSC Division "shall provide staff support to the 9-1-1 Services Board and encourage, promote, and assist in the development and deployment of statewide enhanced emergency telecommunications systems."
The 9-1-1 Services Board is leading Virginia’s efforts to transform an outdated 9-1-1 system into a digital network that is faster, more efficient and has greater Public Safety Answering Points (PSAP) capabilities to better serve its citizens and visitors for years to come. As a result, Virginia continues to be a nationally recognized leader in 9-1-1. Throughout FY 2017, the Board has had a number of accomplishments, the majority of which directly support the implementation of NG9-1-1. Here is a list of these accomplishments:
The Board is well positioned to address new and coming challenges to the 9-1-1 ecosystem in Virginia.
