In The Region:

Stark County will begin implementing a new 911 dispatch system next week.

Stark County Commissioner Tom Bernabei says the new computer-assisted system will allow dispatchers to access more information about calls and suspects.

"A dispatcher in Alliance, for example, ... can understand that the criminal that they are seeking to arrest in Alliance also has warrants outstanding for the city of Canton or the city of Massillon or the state of Ohio or even nationally and so forth," Bernabei says.

Bernabei says the program will cost about $1.4 million to start and will be paid for by the county. The yearly maintenance costs of about $100,000 will be split among the participating dispatch centers. He expects the system will be ready in about 10 months.

Bernabei says the new system will be used by Canton, the county sheriff’s office and the dispatch center that serves a number of departments in the western part of the county. He hopes to convince more of the county’s municipalities to join the system.
