The State of Ohio’s 9-1-1 Program Office recently completed an audit of the Wood County Sheriff’s Office dispatch center. The audit found that 99% of9-1-1 calls into our dispatch center were answered within 10 seconds, and that 100% of 9-1-1 calls were answered within 20 seconds. All wireless (cellular phone) calls in Wood County are answered by the sheriff’s office dispatch center.
The audit also revealed that 88.7% of our 9-1-1 calls are wireless (cell phones); 6.4% are landline ; 4/6% are voice over internet and the remaining .3% of calls are deemed as other.
