May 2007 Joint Dispatch Consolidation Report

October 13 Joint City/County Commissions Regarding the Approval of the Selection of Construction-Manager Services for the Public Safety Complex

Public Safety Complex: Owner's Project Requirements (23MB)

In spring 2006, the Leon County Board of County Commissioners, the City of Tallahassee Commission, and the Leon County Sheriff agreed to begin the process of consolidating the dispatching of law enforcement and emergency personnel. In addition, the Sheriff, the Leon County Board of County Commissioners and the City of Tallahassee Commission authorized the creation of the Public Safety Communications Board (PSCB).

The members serving on the PSCB include:
Leon County Administrator Parwez Alam
Tallahassee City Manager Anita R. Favors Thompson
Leon County Sheriff Larry Campbell
Chief, Tallahassee Police Department, Dennis Jones
Chief, Tallahassee Fire Department, Cindy Dick
Chief, Leon County Emergency Medical Services, Tom Quillin

The PSCB has been charged with the responsibility of overseeing the creation of the Joint Dispatch Center and other various public safety communication concerns. It is the goal of the PSCB to improve services to the public by more efficient handling of both emergency and non-emergency calls and more effective deployment of resources.

Currently in Leon County the dispatching of law enforcement and emergency personnel is operated by two separate entities: the Leon County Sheriff’s Office and the City of Tallahassee Police Department. The Sheriff’s Office dispatches the Sheriff’s deputies and Emergency Medical Services (EMS) personnel operated by Leon County. The City of Tallahassee Police Department dispatches police officers and fire services personnel of the Tallahassee Fire Department and local volunteer fire departments.

The next meeting will be:

January, 2010 - Time and Date to be Announced

On Dec. 13, 2006, the members of the PSCB signed an agreement that will ensure the creation of a joint dispatch center for the purposes of dispatching all law enforcement, fire and emergency medical services.
