Dearborn Heights city leaders debate on whether to consolidate 911 dispatch center
DEARBORN HEIGHTS, Mich. – Police and fire personnel weighed in on what would be substantial savings in just two years if Dearborn Heights’ 911 dispatch center joined the Dearborn Unified Dispatch Center, which includes seven communities. If Dearborn Heights continues to go on its own, there will be substantial money needed to overhaul its dispatch center. Current Dearborn Heights dispatchers made their displeasure known with the idea. Out of 138 dispatches in Michigan, only 36 of them are a single entity, and of those single entities, several are universities and airports. Wayne County is the only county in the state that does not have a countywide consolidated dispatch.
