The article focuses on the use of virtual private networks (VPNs) in public safety. By using encryption to secure data through its transmission via a public network, VPNs offer the security of private networks without the cost. Public-safety agencies have expressed interest in the VPN concept because it is secure, provides instant interoperability on a network-to-network level between connected agencies and allows its users to transport information.
