Tribal Working Group
A Tribal Working Group (TWG), comprised of volunteer delegates from associations with diverse geographic and disciplinary interests in tribal public safety, was established to provide advice on Indian Country outreach, education, and inclusive engagement strategies. FirstNet’s intent is to inform and involve federally recognized tribes in planning for and deployment of the FirstNet network. The TWG provides unique and valuable perspective to FirstNet’s Board and staff, as well as to state single points of contact (SPOCs). They meet monthly via teleconference, along with several in-person meetings each year.
