Allen County Communications believes that the future lies in education, innovative application of modern technology, fostering community relationships, and creative problem solving, to be at the forefront of public safety. The Department, in partnership with the community will work together to make Allen County an exceptional place to live, work and visit by strengthening our communities and enhancing the quality of life.

 

The 911 Communication Professionals are the first representatives of local government to interact with citizens in need. Without leaving our workplace, we are the first public safety persons to 'arrive at the scene'.

 

In 1937 Great Britain introduced the first emergency 3 digit number system: 9-9-9. The United States began the process of creating a single emergency number in 1957, when the National Associate of Fire Chiefs requested a unified system. Ten years later Lyndon Johnson’s Commission on Law Enforcement and Administration of Justice furthered this recommendation with support from various government agencies and officials.
