Network Engineer

The Challenge:

A well-designed network is critical to move data and enable law enforcement to achieve their mission, but how can an organization make sure their network will fit their current and evolving needs? Crafting the right network, with the right equipment and software, requires a combination of technical skill and careful planning. That’s why we need you, a network engineer who knows how to craft the exact network law enforcement needs.

Additionally, you will help resolve interoperability problems to obtain operations across all platforms, performance testing and documentation, administration of networks, configuration management, and provide input on acquisitions and design layout, as requested.
