Communications


The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office Communication Center serves as the communications hub for all emergency services in Hamilton County. Communication Officers are responsible for answering all 911 calls in the county as well as several Sheriff’s Office administrative lines 24 hours a day 7 days a week. They serve as the dispatch center for Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office, Hamilton County Emergency Medical Services, Five County Volunteer Fire Departments and all city municipality Police Departments. Our communications center, while small, has been updated with the latest technology available through the use of various grant funded programs. Hamilton County has an Enhanced 911 system with digital addressing.
