   911 Dispatch Information

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 Carlton County warrants.

The Dispatch center employs a staff of 7 full-time emergency telecommunicators.  This staff provides services for 14 fire departments, 10 first responder units, 4 ambulance services and 5 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.  At this time we are working to add Emergency Medical Dispatch to the services provided.

Dispatch center staff is involved in several community activities, including area career fairs.  The Sheriff's Office also offers a 9-1-1 program for all Carlton County first graders which is presented by Dispatch staff.  Dispatchers have many training opportunities throughout the year, thus assuring that the latest public safety information is available to staff, users and the public.
