The recent terrorist attack in Boston again confirms the need for an E-911 center in Lake County. With a large number of police, fire and ambulance companies, no one communication center at this time could handle a situation like the one in Boston.
An individual working at a combined E-911 center would be able to quickly look at a computer screen and send all possible resources to a location anywhere in Lake County.
It seems to me that Sheriff John Buncich, as a law enforcement professional, understands the benefit of an E-911 center but he is having a hard time educating some city and town politicians.
Just remember, Lake County is home to many religious centers.
