CARROLL COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) – Public safety operations will be getting a major boost in Carroll County.

Last week, the Carroll County Council offered $220,000 toward a new 911 dispatch system for the entire county.

They said the new system will run more efficiently than the current one, offering more features to better assist public safety officials.

The current system will be converted in the coming months and there are plans to provide in-house training on the new equipment.

Lead communicator of 911 operations Cassi Lane said she’s excited for what the new system has to offer.

“I think it’s gonna be a huge step up. It’s going to offer better officer safety, public safety, citizen safety,” Lane said.

The goal is to have the new system up and running by Jan. 1.
