- Adoption of authentication and encryption requirements for common public safety broadband applications and network use.
- Coordination of the center’s policies with other entities, including federal agencies
- Coordination of other policies the Center may have responsibilities from time to time.

Members can be government officials, lobbyists, “federal user groups,” and others involved in the public safety community; equipment vendors, service providers and representatives of other industries.
