Communications

  • Answer the phone lines – 911 emergency lines, direct lines from other emergency agencies, general calls for service and emergency fire phone lines.
  • Dispatch emergency personnel as needed while operating several radio frequencies simultaneously.

From barking dog complaints to homicides to fire calls, our highly skilled dispatchers process vast amounts of information that funnel through the communications hub at one time. In-depth training helps to keep Communications working at tip-top performance, providing county residents and law enforcement officers a life-line 24 hours a day.
Communicators answered 69,630 calls last year. Of that number, 26,612 calls were for 911 emergencies.
