The VQiPS Working Group was composed of volunteers from each public safety discipline, including law enforcement, fire, and emergency medical services from the local, state, and Federal levels, as well as representatives from industry, Federal agencies, academia, and non-profit organizations. Together, these entities worked to coordinate disparate video standard development efforts and ultimately arm public safety consumers with the knowledge they need to purchase and deploy the right video systems to fulfill their missions.

The VQiPS Working Group extends its sincere appreciation to the many emergency responders, individuals, and government organizations that contributed to its efforts during the decade that ITS contributed to the program.
