911 Legislation

Legislative Tracking Database: The National 911 Program partners with the National Conference of State Legislators (NCSL) to create a 911 database for tracking all modifications to new and existing laws across the U.S. and its territories. The database is searchable by state, topic, keyword and other filters and is updated bi-weekly.

Guidelines for State NG911 Legislative Language and the Guidelines for Developing a State NG911 Plan: In early 2018, the Program convened a team of 911 stakeholders to update these documents to help systems prepare for and implement NG911 capabilities. The updates include guidance on overcoming challenges inherent to today’s technological landscape, accounting for shifts in how the public accesses 911 services, and detailed best practices and sample approaches. In fall 2018, the project team solicited public comments on new drafts of the two documents and released the updated documents.
