GARDEN CITY, KAN (WesternKansasNews.Com) – This morning, Senator Jerry Moran announced a federal investment of $500,000 in the Garden City Police Department to acquire a Mobile Command Emergency 911 Dispatch Center.
The Mobile Command Emergency 911 Dispatch Center and the compatible communication technology will provide a secondary option of communication for first responders in the event that the main 911 dispatch is inoperable. Additionally, the mobility of the backup services provides Garden City the capability to assist another agency if their system goes down.
Senator Moran has been a vocal advocate for first responders and public safety, and we cannot thank him enough for his efforts. We are incredibly humbled by the awarded funding, which will support our department to further protect Garden City and Finney County.
