DHS: Are You a Victim of Electronic Jamming?

Date: 2017-01-10
Share |

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Federal Communications Commission (FCC), and law enforcement officials have noted an increase in jamming activity over the last several years. These threats can intentionally or unintentionally interfere with responder communications equipment and leave responders without vital communications or critical situational awareness. Federal law prohibits the operation, manufacture, sale, marketing, importation, distribution, or shipment of jamming equipment.

Electronic jamming is a significant threat to first responder and public safety communications and should be taken seriously. DHS will share updated information as it becomes available, including additional details on threats, mitigation strategies, and technologies. For more information on the 2016 First Responder Electronic Jamming Exercise or the planned 2017 follow-on exercise, contact: Jamming Exercise.

If your department has been affected by electronic jamming, please immediately report suspected activity to the FCC.
