Eligibility

Bridge4PS was developed to provide a secure, collaboration platform for public safety practitioners across the nation. Unlike other platforms which are geared towards internal department communications, Bridge4PS was built deliberately to facilitate
multi-organizational information sharing and interoperability based on the following Strategic Objectives:

  1. Build an Exclusive collaboration platform for public safety
  2. Deliver a Secure and Highly Available product
  3. Protect the Integrity of the Bridge4PS User Community
  4. Provide Expedient Access to eligible users
  5. Facilitate Interoperability across disciplines, geographies, or organizations
  6. Remain Network and Device Agnostic
  7. Maintain features Effective for ANY public safety operations

Developing a tool that successfully achieved all of these objectives was no trivial task, but now Bridge4PS is being used daily by thousands of public safety practitioners across the United States sharing hundreds of thousands of messages and files. As our user base grows, we continue to evolve the platform and adapt our policies and procedures to support new use cases.
All decisions are weighed against our Strategic Objectives and openly communicated to the entire Bridge4PS User Community. See the section below for additional information about Bridge4PS User Eligibility.
