LA-RICS JPA Board of Directors bids farewell to the Interim Executive Director and welcomes the incoming Executive Director.
A message from John Radeleff,
Interim Executive Director
Serving as the Interim Executive Director for the past year has been an extremely rewarding experience. LA-RICS has made impressive strides in achieving its goal of interoperable and integrated voice and data communications. We have achieved many significant goals in both funding and construction that now ensure the success of both the LMR and LTE systems.
The LTE network is nearing completion and we are now actively “on-boarding” public safety agency users. The LMR network has extensive construction in progress with eighteen new sites expected for completion by year’s end. The recent Rose Parade deployment had more than 1,000 LMR and more than 100 LTE active LA-RICS users along the parade route alone. The tide has changed and momentum continues to build for the successful completion of these state-of-the-art systems.
Finally, I must add that the LA-RICS Board of Directors and the creative and enthusiastic project staff have been nothing short of amazing. I would ask that you seek out any Board Member to gain a better understanding of the changes and successes that have taken place this past year. It has been a pleasure and honor to serve as your LA-RICS Interim Executive Director. I am so very pleased that Scott Edson has been selected as the permanent Executive Director and perfect choice to lead LA-RICS into its bright future.
