The author talks about the developments in the communication systems in New York and New Jersey. Legacy systems which are regular conventional radio for the Suffolk County, New York were the first systems he encountered. In the 1980s, he worked for the New York/New Jersey Port Authority, Nassau County and Bergen County, New Jersey, where they became the regional planning group. The concept of the New York Statewide network project was indicated as the most essential thing that public safety has to consider.
