Lee Dispatch Center closing, calls to go to county.

#1 Post by W1KNE » 27 Sep 2017 19:32

From the Lee Police Department's Facebook Page
As announced at several selectboard meeting over the past couple of years the Lee Dispatch Center also formerly known as the switchboard will be closing October 2, 2017. On the morning of Oct. 2nd, 243-2100 will be answered by the Berkshire Sherriff Control Dispatch Center. The Police department number 243-5530 will also be answered by them if unanswered after 4 rings by either the admin assistant or an officer in the station. 911 calls will go directly to the Berkshire Sherriff Dispatch Center as of 5 pm on Oct. 2nd. There will be no change in response times to calls with the new system they are just being answered in a different location. Lee residents however are encouraged to call directly to the office they wish to speak to, and a list of those numbers is provided below as well as on the front page of the Town of Lee website. Copies will be available at the Police Station. The officers would also like to thank all of our dispatchers current and past for their years of service to our community.
Unsure if this means Lee will be dispatched via their own repeater pair (154.7550 Out / 107.2), or if they move to county dispatch.[/font][/color]

I was too far away to hear more than the one transmission, but heard "Berkshire control to Lee 904" on the countywide 153.965 channel today

I only heard a couple transmissions, but I believe I heard them use callsign 904. From what I can see on the Lee PD facebook page, cruiser numbers are 902, 904, 906, and 908

Yes they are. Dispatch was always referred to as "900".
