GIS supports community safety
Today's world of uncertainty and instability makes keeping communities safe incredibly difficult. GIS allows you to quickly identify vulnerabilities, target mitigation efforts to areas of greatest need, and support critical decisions with data. Public safety grant programs are available to help build and sustain the GIS capacity resilient communities need.
