On September 1, the FCC released a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking which seeks to permit railroad police officers to use public safety interoperability and mutual aid channels in the VHF, UHF, 700 MHz narrowband, and 800 MHz National Public Safety Planning Advisory Committee (NPSPAC) bands.  The NPRM proposes to designate railroad police as eligible users of public safety interoperability and mutual aid channels in order to communicate with public safety licensees on those channels.  Last week, the Office of the Federal Register published a summary of the NPRM.  Comments are now by November 13, 2015 and reply comments by November 30, 2015.
