HOWLAND, Ohio (WYTV) – The city of Warren is joining forces with Trumbull County and turning over their dispatch operations to the county-wide 911 center.
The combined center, located in Howland, started receiving calls Wednesday morning.
The merger has been in the works for more than a year, and city officials say it will save Warren about a half-million dollars per year. Although working from a new space does take some getting used to, Trumbull County Sheriff’s Office Chief Ernest Cook said things are going smoothly so far.
“All the software, everything worked,” Cook said. “It’s a matter of just doing some personal data transfers. I was very impressed.”
