Sutter County Sheriff's Office

Communications Unit

Communications Center Dispatchers
The Sutter County Communications Unit is a Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP). Our Communications Center has the responsibility of answering incoming 911 calls as well as non-emergency calls for service.

Radio-dispatching services for the Sheriff's Office as well as the Fire Department are provided by the Communications Center. At times we also assist and communicate with Animal Control, Public Works, and sometimes Fish & Game field personnel. Our center is manned twenty-four (24) hours, seven (7) days a week, with a minimum of two dispatchers on duty at all times.

On July 1, 1999, the Sutter County Sheriff's Office began supplying EMD (Emergency Medical Dispatching) in which pre-arrival medical assistance and instructions are provided by the Dispatcher to the citizens of Sutter County.
