COMMUNICATIONS CENTER

     THE PRAIRIE COUNTY COMMUNICATIONS CENTER IS A VERY VITAL PART OF THE SHERIFFS DEPARTMENT. IN OUR COMMUNICATIONS ROOM, WE HAVE NUMEROUS EQUIPMENT THAT WE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR MONITORING. 

  •  WE HAVE A RADIO CONSOLE, THAT HOUSES 6 DIFFERENT RADIO FREQUENCIES THROUGHOUT THE COUNTY, WE USE FOUR OF THESE EVERY DAY.  THIS IS USED BY OUR LAW ENFORCEMENT, AMBULANCES, FIRE DEPARTMENT, STATE POLICE, AND OTHER LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICES THAT NEED TO GET IN CONTACT WITH US QUICKLY. 
  • WE HAVE AN ACIC/NCIC TERMINAL WHICH WE USE TO ACCESS ALL NATIONAL AND STATE CRIME INFORMATION.  SUCH AS DRIVERS LICENSE, LICENSE PLATES, CRIMINAL HISTORIES, AND OTHER PERTINENT INFORMATION. WE GIVE AND RECEIVE NUMEROUS MESSAGES ON THIS TERMINAL EVERY DAY. WE ARE ABLE TO SPEAK TO ANY LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY IN THE NATION THAT IS A PART OF THE NATIONAL CRIME INFORMATION CENTER. THIS TERMINAL ALSO PROVIDES US WITH AUTOMATIC WEATHER UPDATES. 
  • WE ARE ALSO RESPONISBLE FOR 911 EMERGENCY LINES, SOME OF THESE MUST BE HANDLED BY OUR DEPARTMENT OR ONE OF THE CITIES IN OUR COUNTY THAT WE DISPATCH FOR. OTHERS ARE SENT TO THE DEPARTMENT WITH JURISDICTION OVER THAT CALL.  WHILE WE DO DISPATCH FOR THE DES ARC AMBULANCE SERVICE, WE DO NOT DISPATCH FOR SOUTHERN PARAMEDICS. WE TAKE CALLS AND PUT THEM THROUGH TO THEIR DISPATCH WHICH IS LOCATED IN STUTTGART. WE WORK WITH SOUTHERN PARAMEDICS ON A DAILY BASIS, AND USUALLY HAVE RADIO CONTACT WITH THEIR AMBULANCES.
  • WE ALSO ANSWER THE LAND LINE PHONES THAT PEOPLE CALL FOR INFORMATION, AND SOMETIMES CALL FOR EMERGENCY PURPOSES. THESE LINES ARE USED FOR QUESTIONS FROM CITIZENS, OR FOR THE JAIL AS WELL.
  • THE SHERIFFS DEPARTMENT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR SETTING OFF THE TORNADO SIREN FOR THE CITY OF DES ARC. THERE IS A VERY STRICT PROTOCOL THAT HAS TO BE FOLLOWED, THAT WAS SET UP BY THE DES ARC CITY COUNCIL.
  • WE ALSO HAVE PHONES IN OUR COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEM THAT WHEN PICKED UP WILL PUT US IN DIRECT CONTACT WITH AIR EVAC, IN THE EVENT THAT WE NEED A MEDICAL HELICOPTOR.
  • THE COMMUNICATIONS CENTER IS ALSO RESPONSIBLE FOR HANDLING THE WARRANTS ENTERED AND DELETED INTO THE NATIONAL AND STATE SYSTEM FOR THE COUNTY AND CITIES IN THE COUNTY.
