Oglesby to ease folks into 9-1-1 consolidation

Posted by wlpo on July 19, 2016

Consolidation of Illinois Valley 9-1-1 centers is happening and it will mean less accessibility if you live in Oglesby.

According to the NewsTribune, the Illinois Valley Regional Dispatch based in Peru will go into effect September 1st. When that happens, dispatchers will be inside the Oglesby police station to handle your concerns but on weekdays only. There will be a telephone inside the police station to reach a dispatcher at all times somewhere other than Oglesby. Each city will still maintain its own police force to respond to calls in their city.

Illinois Valley fire and police departments are being forced by the state to consolidate their 9-1-1 dispatch centers.
