Sacramento – California’s capital city, historic center of the Gold Rush and the center of state government. This vibrant metropolis is known by a number of different nicknames: “Camellia Capital” for the city flower found so abundantly in Sacramento neighborhoods; “City of Trees” due to the countless miles of tree-lined streets and wooded parks in the region; “River City” by virtue of two major rivers (Sacramento and American) that converge near historic Old Sacramento; and “Farm to Fork Capital” for the abundance of fresh food grown and raised nearby. Clearly, Sacramento is much more than just the “Capital City.” Cal OES is charged with protecting the State from all hazards and threats, whether natural or man-made. Cal OES is both the State’s emergency management agency and it is also the State’s Homeland Security Department. In addition, Cal OES oversees all public safety communications in the State and the 9-1-1 system. 

The Assistant Director, Public Safety Communications, will be responsible for overseeing the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services, Public Safety Communications Division and will report to the Deputy Director of Logistics Management. In this capacity, the incumbent will be responsible for statewide programs, policies, and procedures related to emergency communications including, but not limited to statewide 9-1-1 program, public safety radios, public safety broadband, microwave network, and public safety communications interoperability. Responsibilities include supporting federal, state, and local governments in meeting public safety communications requirements. 

The ideal candidate will be an effective public speaker and a dynamic leader with solid knowledge of government processes and structure, knowledge of the technical aspects of public safety communications, and an understanding of the 9-1-1 system, including the development and relevant initiatives such as AB1624, AB2095, AB2010, Project 25 (P25 or APCO-25), State Point of Contact, and FirstNet. Past experience leading mid-size to large scale departments (340-400) and budgets ($70-80mil), and a background in both the public and private telecommunication sectors are ideal. Bachelor’s Degree from an accredited college or university in a relevant field is desired. A Master’s Degree is ideal. 10 years of progressive experience in a related field is desired. 

To be considered, please submit a detailed résumé, cover letter, four work-related references and your current salary. Your résumé should indicate the size of organization staff you have managed and also reflect both months and years with regard to the employment dates for current and prior positions held. Please submit your materials to:
