About Us

The Public Safety Communications Division is responsible for providing communications services to the police and fire departments, including answering 911 and non-emergency telephone calls, dispatching public safety resources, and providing emergency medical dispatch services and 911 education to the public.

The Public Safety Communications Division is comprised of highly skilled civilian professionals, including allocations for an administrator, staff assistant, five supervisors, 24 full time dispatchers, and 3 part time dispatchers.

These dedicated professionals provide an invaluable service to the community and our public safety agencies. They are called upon to quickly transform confusing and often conflicting data into actionable information and then provide it to first responders.
