CROWN POINT, Ind. (WOWO): One of Indiana‘s largest emergency communications consolidations is moving ahead, on-schedule.
The Lake County emergency communications center is scheduled to open around the end of March, in what E-9-1-1 executive director Brian Hitchcock considers record time considering he only got started on the project early last year.
It was supposed to be completed on December 31st.
The state-mandated consolidation was delayed for years by opposition from the politicians in Lake County towns and cities.
It will combine at least 15 community dispatch centers into one.
