JOINT DISPATCH PRESS CONFERENCE

NOTICE OF PRESS CONFERENCE
THE COPLEY TOWNSHIP TRUSTEES AND THE MAYOR OF THE CITY OF NORTON WILL BE HOLDING A JOINT PRESS CONFERENCE ON THURSDAY, JANUARY 15TH AT 4:00 PM AT THE COPLEY TOWNSHIP POLICE STATION, 1280 SUNSET DRIVE, COPLEY, OHIO, TO ANNOUNCE THE COMMENCEMENT OF A JOINT DISPATCH PROGRAM BETWEEN THE TWO COMMUNITIES.
PRESS PACKETS WILL BE AVAILABLE AT THE CONFERENCE.
 
PRESS RELEASE
JANUARY 15, 2009
 
Copley Township and the City of Norton have commenced a Joint Dispatch Pilot Program on January 12, 2009 with the goals of improving police and fire dispatch services and reducing costs in both communities.
 
Officials have been meeting for appoximately seven months in preparation for this program. The Joint Dispatch center is located in the Copley Police Department, 1280 Sunset Drive. Copley Township trustees have upgraded the dispatch area and recently installed a third dispatch station. The City of Norton also made equipment upgrades in order to accomodate the change in location. Recent changes in technology allow the dispatch center to be located outside of the immediate area and still provide the necessary connections and communications to ensure efficient operations of public safety services.
 
The Dispatch Center will be staffed with a minimum of three dispatchers working 24 hours - 7 days per week. Dispatchers are also trained as Emergency Medical Dispatchers, which allow an added level of service to emergency calls.
 
The Joint Program was authorized by a Memorandum of Understanding between the Township and the City signed by officials in both communities.
 
The joint dispatch service will be seamless to callers in both Copley Township and the City of Norton. Residents will not experience any change in the way calls are handled except that when calls are placed on the non-emergency line, it will be answered "Police and Fire Dispatch". The dispatchers will know if the call is being placed from a Copley or Norton resident and will handle them accordingly.
 
The employees in the Dispatch Center will continue to work for their respective communities under the terms and conditions of their respective Collective Bargaining Agreements. Any new expenditures incurred by the communities will be shared between Copley and Norton.
 
During the course of the program, an evaluation will be conducted to ensure the program is meeting its stated goals. A decision to continue this program permanently will be made in 4th quarter, 2009.
