Washington, D.C. - Today, the FCC's Enforcement Bureau announced that it has changed the name of its Technical and Public Safety Division to the Spectrum Enforcement Division. The new name is intended to better reflect the functions and responsibilities of the Division.
The renamed Spectrum Enforcement Division will continue to carry out its existing functions, which include enforcement (and support for enforcement by the Bureau's Field Offices) in such areas as unauthorized construction and operation, interference, equipment requirements, 911 and E-911, and radio tower lighting. The Division's responsibilities also include the provision of engineering technology support to the Bureau's Field Offices and the operation of the Bureau's high frequency direction-finding facilities.
Joseph P. Casey is the Chief of the Spectrum Enforcement Division. Ricardo Durham and Kathy Berthot are Deputy Division Chiefs.
The name change will take effect immediately.
