The Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials-International (APCO) was founded in 1935 and is the world's largest organization dedicated to public safety telecommunications.

APCO has developed several standards that bear its name. For example APCO-16, APCO-25, and the APCO phonetic alphabet are all widely used.

APCO International is the world’s oldest and largest organization of public safety communications professionals and supports the largest U.S. membership base of any public safety association. It serves the needs of public safety communications practitioners worldwide - and the welfare of the general public as a whole – by providing complete expertise, professional development, technical assistance, advocacy and outreach.
