Lincoln County 911 Central Dispatch
The Lincoln County Communications Center was established by the Lincoln County Commissioners on October 26, 1996, and is under the oversight of the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office. Central Dispatch for Lincoln County is a coordinated effort involving all city and county Law/Ambulance/Fire Agencies being served. The center was funded by the existing 911 Telephone Tax, general revenue and user fees.
The Communication Center at that point, was moved from the old jail facility to the Lincoln County Sheriffs Office at 65 Business Park Dr. In 2007, the Communication Center was moved to our current location of 250 W. College St., Troy, MO.
The Communication Center now has five fully operational dispatch stations that are 24/7, as well as two-paperwork stations. We now use National Academy Police/Fire/EMS standards in call taking and train in house with the American Heart Association CPR. We operate with an enhanced 911 system that went operational in 1997, providing coordinates from landline or cell phone; to locate the call.
The role of a 911 Dispatcher is forever evolving with training and technology. We are the first responder to the emergency.
