Today, APCO celebrates the one-year anniversary of establishing the Application Community (www.AppComm.org). Recognizing the potential of apps to revolutionize public safety communications, APCO created AppComm to facilitate collaboration between public safety professionals and app developers to foster development of the most effective apps for public safety. AppComm serves as the single, trusted resource for mobile apps serving a public safety or emergency response purpose.
