Summit County & Park City Consolidate Public Safety Dispatch Services
Coalville, UT (August 31, 2017)—Over the past year, Summit County and Park City Municipal leadership have been working together to consolidate and streamline public safety dispatch services. The county and city both recognized that our communities would be better served—and public safety services would be executed more efficiently—by combining resources. Effective January 1, Summit County Sheriff’s Office will provide dispatch services for all public safety agencies in Summit County, including Police, Fire, EMS, and Public Works.
Chief Wade Carpenter and Sheriff Justin Martinez issued the following joint statement:
“Our command staffs have collectively been evaluating the creation of a unified dispatch service for well over a year. By consolidating to form the Public Safety Communications Center, we will improve public safety communication, increase efficiencies and provide enhanced 911 dispatch operations, enabling us to be more responsive to requests from both our public safety agencies and the public. The overall safety and welfare of the residents and guests within our jurisdiction remains our primary focus.”
Park City’s Dispatch has historically acted as the liaison between the City’s internal municipal divisions and community businesses, as well as key city, county, state, and federal agencies. This new partnership and consolidation will further strengthen interdisciplinary information-sharing while maintaining the same level of customer service excellence for all county residents and visitors.
Under the consolidated structure, fewer emergency calls will be transferred, resulting in a more efficient emergency communications system and a higher level of service. Additionally, police emergency communications will be simulcast on one channel, which will be accessed by local and state police agencies.
The Park City and Summit County Public Safety dispatchers are a dedicated team of public safety professionals who work daily behind the scenes to ensure our community receives outstanding customer service. We thank them for their ongoing commitment to our safety and security.

UNITY & PRIDE IN COMMUNITY: Andy Beerman's first letter to Parkites as mayor: Friends, It’s true, I am a perennial optimist, but with good reason. Although there are many big challenges facing Park City, we are fortunate to have all the tools and resources we need to solve them. What made our last Council so successful was our faith in our collective ability to make positive change, and we took bold action when opportunities presented themselves. I hope the current Council will show this same courage. Our community wants us to take action, to shape our future, to be proactive about building the town we want. One of our community’s greatest strengths is our diversity, but because of our success as a town, the gap between the haves and the have-nots is growing. We need to rediscover our kindness and our patience, and focus on inclusiveness. It’s time to develop a formalized framework for social equity so that we can better tackle the disparities of our society. I’m really excited about this initiative, especially since there is already a groundswell of community support and there are so many existing programs. We’ll be doing a deep dive on this topic at the City Council Retreat (March 1 & 2), and over the next few months will be developing a strategic plan. I invite you to be part of this very important conversation: go to our online community forum, EngageParkCity, sign up, and give us your thoughts. As I embark on my new adventure, I’m excited about the possibilities, but—more than anything—I’m grateful. I’m grateful for all of you, for the chance to serve as your mayor, and for the privilege of living in Park City. Let's remember that we are surrounded by wonderful people, an amazing natural environment, and an abundance of human and natural capital. We’re lucky enough to live here, so let’s pay it forward by building a stronger, more inclusive community in which everyone feels safe, welcome, and valued. If we work together and focus on what makes us a complete community, our best days are ahead. -- Mayor Andy Beerman (Photo credit: Tanzi Propst/Park Record)
