National Council of Statewide Interoperability Coordinators

DHS-NCSWIC-LOGOEstablished by the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) in July 2010, the National Council of Statewide Interoperability Coordinators (NCSWIC) supports Statewide Interoperability Coordinators (SWIC) from the 56 states and territories, by developing products and services to assist them with leveraging their relationships, professional knowledge, and experience with public safety partners involved in interoperable communications at all levels of government.

CISA is the lead coordination agency for the NCSWIC and recognizes the critical role the SWICs serve in organizing and executing the interoperability effort in all the states and territories.

The Emergency Communications Advisory White Paper explains the difference between NCSWIC and organizations such as, SAFECOM, First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) Public Safety Advisory Committee (PSAC), and National Public-Safety Telecommunications Council (NPSTC).
