BROWARD COUNTY, Fla. – Another major milestone in the consolidation of the 911 dispatch systems in Broward County was achieved on Monday, February 17, as the E911 Dispatch Center in Pompano Beach was successfully merged into Broward County's Regional E911 Consolidated Dispatch System.

This consolidation milestone brings the County another step closer to the goal of regionalization, in which the majority of Broward County will operate under a unified countywide technology platform utilizing common processes.

Once finalized, Broward County's Regional Consolidated E911 Dispatch System will provide a cost effective, operationally efficient system aimed at reducing the number of misrouted 911 calls.

The success of this most recent merger was the result of a very carefully planned and executed effort between Broward County's Office of Communications Technology and the cities of
Pompano Beach, Lighthouse Point, Lauderdale-By-The- Sea, Sea Ranch Lakes and Broward Sheriff's Office Regional Communications Division.

The above cities join Sunrise, Margate and Coconut Creek in Broward County's Regional Consolidated E911 dispatch system. 

Additional consolidations will continue to take place in the coming months with the expectation of having the E911/Dispatch Regional Consolidated System completed in 2014.

The Regional Consolidated E911 Dispatch System is managed by Broward County's Office of Communications Technology and operated by the Broward Sheriff's Office.
