The events of September 11, 2001, caused a major change in the communications needs of all public safety agencies throughout the United States. It became apparent that there was little to no capacity for one agency to communicate directly with surrounding entities.
The City of Sheridan has made major changes in their communications systems to make interoperability with most of the police
, and EMS systems a reality.
This means that the citizens of Sheridan will be part of a statewide effort to provide communication that is seamless, fast, and effective. The lives and safety of our citizens are the most important part of our mission. This change will help us achieve our mission.
Since October 1, 2009, the Arapahoe County Communication Center
has been dispatching for the Sheridan Police Department. The Denver Combined Communications Center
dispatches for our fire and medical services.
