County Approves Purchase of New Dispatch Equipment
04/21/2017

(KMZA)--The Nemaha County Sheriff’s Department will be getting new dispatch equipment. 

At the request of Sheriff Rich Vernon, the Nemaha County Commission this week approved the purchase two refurbished 911 radio systems for just over $43,000, with the funding to come from the county’s 911 fund.  

Vernon says the equipment will come from Commenco Radio’s of Kansas City, where he says he has purchased equipment before.

He says price for new equipment is nearly $87,000.

Vernon also informed Commissioners that the Kansas 911 Council is now recommending that dispatchers receive 21 hours of training each year.  He says his dispatchers are already complying with that recommendation, but now will need to begin logging those hours.

Vernon also told Commissioners he has hired two new corrections officers for the jail.  Scott Meade and Cole Lehwald will both begin work with the county on April 24th at a salary of $13.31 an hour.
