Regional Communications Center
Dispatch is the public safety lifeline for our county. It answers and dispatches all 911 emergency calls as well as our administrative lines. They assist people in medical emergencies by providing detailed help to render aid. They coordinate responding emergency units, and secure other needed services at the scene. They provide law enforcement with license and registration information, stolen property and wanted persons, critical weather information, and far more information than can be mentioned.
We have a dispatch Sgt and 8 full-time and 2 part-time dispatchers.
