What is 9-1-1?

9-1-1 is the number utilized in North America to report an emergency. Although it is in wide use, it is by no means universal. Rural areas may still utilize seven digit numbers for the police department, fire department, and ambulance services. Check the inside cover of your telephone directory for numbers valid in your area.

CALEA Reaccreditation

On Saturday, March 21, 2009, I had the honor to represent you and appear before the CALEA Commission to discuss our center. The Commissioners asked several questions about our center; then started with personal observations based on the report filed during the recent on-site.

Included in the comments:

  • The professionalism of the center staff.
  • How friendly the staff was during the visit.
  • The knowledge base of the center staff.
  • How courteous the staff was to citizen callers and first responders.

The bottom line is that the Commission sang your praises and reaccredited our center. Thank you and congratulations on your second reaccreditation.
