Central Communications Center
The Communications Center monitors and directs all field units through the use of a computer aided dispatch (CAD) system. The CAD system is capable of tracking unit locations, creating incident files, applying hazard alerts to addresses, and creating statistical reports on crime and incident data. The personnel assigned to Central Dispatch operate five Sheriff’s Office channels and monitor eleven others.
The Sheriff’s Office is a core member of the UASI (Urban Area Security Initiative) Region. As part of our regional presence, the Sheriff’s Office operates two interoperability channels. These tactical channels, when activated, permit numerous law enforcement agencies to communicate with one another during large-scale events, emergencies and exercises.
