Homeland Security Launches "Regional Technology Integration" Initiative in Cincinnati, Ohio

The Department of Homeland Security today announced a new initiative called Regional Technology Integration (RTI) to facilitate the transition of innovative technologies and organizational concepts to regional, state, and local jurisdictions. Through the program, managed by Homeland Security’s Science & Technology directorate, four urban areas across the country have been selected to be the initial pilot locations for this program. The Cincinnati, Ohio, urban area is one of these four. All of the selected regions are currently participating in the Homeland Security Urban Area Security Initiative and have demonstrated a willingness and capacity to adopt advanced and innovative concepts for emergency preparedness and public safety. “This initiative will help communities strengthen their security posture by speeding the introduction and implementation of new technologies,” said Homeland Security Under Secretary for Science and Technology Charles McQueary. “From detection to prevention, from preparedness to response, we will focus on quickly bringing the best of American innovation to bear on homeland security in a model that can be replicated nationwide.” Full Story
