To the citizens of Greene County: The issue of the 911 Dispatch Center being removed from the Sheriff’s Office and put under control of the county has raised a lot of questions and concerns and rightfully so. The legal responsibility of the oversight and management of the 911 Dispatch Center falls under the county. The one thing that everyone should know is that the 911 Dispatch Center has been managed by the Sheriff’s Office as a courtesy to the county without any additional compensation to the Sheriff. This is done because it only makes sense to have all Emergency Services in one location. Not only does this benefit the citizens with a more coordinated response but it also saves money. I was informed this week of the decision that the county has made to take over the management and supervision of the 911 Dispatch Center. At this time, there are no active facilities and equipment that I am aware of that will adequately allow the county to handle this responsibility. Once the county took control of the 911 Dispatch employees, federal and state directive no longer allows the Sheriff to let those employees be around the VCIN/NCIC terminals unless a Memorandum of Control is signed. This has caused a stressful situation for all employees. The Sheriff’s Office will continue to effectively run the 911 Dispatch Center until this issue has been resolved. The employees who can no longer be around the VCIN/NCIC terminals are still actively assisting with dispatch duties.

I would like to thank all employees at the Greene County Sheriff’s Office for their dedication and professionalism in serving the citizens of Greene County. As always, we are “Putting Citizens First.”

"Drive Sober Or Get Pulled Over" Mobilization Campaign

During the upcoming holiday season the Greene County Sheriff’s Office will be partnering with the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in a special year-end Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over enforcement mobilization to get drunk drivers off the street and to spread the word about the dangers of impaired driving.

Increased patrols will begin December 13th and continue through January 1st.

The holiday period is full of festivities that often contribute to an increase in the number of drunk drivers on the road. Nationally during 2016, traffic crashes killed 37,461 people. Twenty-eight percent (10,497) died in impaired driving crashes where a driver had a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) over the limit of .08.

This should be a time of peace and happiness as friends and families come together. Substance–impaired driving is simply not worth the risk. So don’t take the chance. Remember, we will be out in force and we will be watching, so “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over”.
