  • Abstract:
    The Public Safety and Transportation Operations Center’s (PSTOC’s) Concept of Cooperation (ConCoop) enables partner agencies to lay out and reach consensus on:

    • their intentions in co-locating;

    • joint functions and systems needed to meet their objectives;

    • how they together will take best advantage of co-location, both in technical operations and in general management (e.g., create new business practices or modify existing ones);

    • agreements (formal and informal) needed among partner agencies; and

    • topics needing close attention in the transition to actual operation.

    A critical feature of the ConCoop is its focus on the overlap of operational interests of two or more partner agencies, rather than day-to-day task details for any one agency. As a result, the ConCoop indicates the degrees of “integration” and “formality” desired in managing overlapping interests. This version of the PSTOC Concept of Cooperation summarizes accomplishments and agreements, together with top issues raised since formal joint discussions started in spring, 2004. It also provides a basis for ongoing assessment of discrepancies between objectives and actual status.

    Agencies to reside in the PSTOC include the Department of Public Safety Communications (DPSC) and the Office of Emergency Management (OEM) from Fairfax County, the northern Virginia Smart Traffic Center (STC) from Virginia DOT, and the dispatchers from Virginia State Police’s District 7 office in northern Virginia. The targeted opening date of the new facility is November 2007.
