Public Safety Planning
Serving Those Who Protect
The Public Safety Planning Department of the Brazos Valley Council of Governments is significantly involved in several aspects of public safety planning, including Emergency Communications, Hazard Mitigation, Homeland Security, Criminal Justice, Emergency Management, planning and training, and grant management for several major federal grant programs.
Public safety planning includes establishing liaisons with statewide and regional emergency management coordinators, federal government, state government, local and county government, law enforcement, firefighters, emergency medical services, public and educational officials, and emergency communications organizations.
Additionally, the Public Safety Planning Department is responsible for the development and maintenance of the Regional Interoperable Communications Plan, Region Emergency Response Plan, and the Hazard Mitigation Plan, as well as the oversight of the Homeland Security Grants, Interoperable Emergency Communications Grant, Criminal Justice Grants, Public Safety Communications Grants, and other public safety-related funding programs as they become available.
