PORTER | The Porter Town Council voted unanimously Tuesday to merge police dispatch units with Chesterton.
Lake County's deadline for E-911 consolidation is rapidly approaching. The time for objections by St. John officials and others is over.
For more than a year, members of the One Region Public Safety Committee have been meeting to collectively assess and evaluate law enforcement functions within Lake, Porter, and LaPorte counties.
PORTAGE | Just last month, a Portage woman dialed 911 from her cellphone.
Police and fire officials in Lake County have accepted an offer they couldn't refuse -- free space at the Lake County Government Center in Crown Point to house the consolidated E911 dispatch service. It's a smart move.
NEW CHICAGO | New Chicago eliminated its 911 dispatch last month, becoming the first community to consolidate with Lake County, Town Council President Laurie Robbins said.
Porter County officials may be facing some difficult decisions regarding the county's E911 system in the coming months.
East Chicago dispatcher Tanya Scott took the initiative to pick up a “lost caller” and drove her to Hobart based on a 911 call. Scott was also “instrumental” in the apprehension of three men involved in a series of robberies in the city.
