In July 2008, the Statewide Interoperability Executive Committee was established by the Governor (Executive Order 01.01.2008.07). On June 18, 2024, the Governor reconstituted the Committee (Executive Order 01.01.2024.20).

The Statewide Interoperability Executive Committee provides governance and policy-level advice regarding public safety emergency communications interoperability. For matters related to public safety emergency communications and interoperability, the Committee promotes the efficient and effective use of resources.

To ensure that emergency and public safety agencies statewide have compatible communications systems, the Committee develops standards and policies which it approves and updates in the Maryland Statewide Communications Interoperability Plan. Further, it promotes cooperation among federal, State and local public safety agencies; sets funding priorities for statewide interoperability projects; and advises on the development of a statewide interoperable radio and data communications system. The Committee works with the Program Management Office of the Department of State Police in creating and implementing the Statewide interoperable communications system.

To carry out its work, the Committee may set up work groups and subcommittees as needed.

The Committee has up to twenty-one members. Of these, ten serve ex officio. The Secretary of Emergency Management chairs the Committee.
