The Sheriff’s Office 9-1-1 center is the County’s Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP). In addition to answering 9-1-1 calls and dispatching appropriate responses, the Dispatch center works with rural addressing issues and enters all of the Lincoln County warrants.
The Dispatch center employs a staff of 10 full-time emergency telecommunicators. This staff provides services for 13 fire departments, 5 first responder units, 6 ambulance services and 4 different law enforcement agencies. The entire staff is dedicated to providing system users and the public with the best public safety response available to them.
Dispatch center staff is involved in several community activities, including area career fairs. Dispatchers have many training opportunities throughout the year, thus assuring that the latest public safety information is available to staff, users and the public.
