Our Mission
The mission of Coweta County 911 is to provide timely assistance to persons in need while maintaining a safe environment for the Public Safety personnel in the field.


History

In 1988, the Coweta County Board of Commissioners put the question of having a 911 system before the voters in a referendum.  The response in favor was overwhelming, and work began in late 1988 to develop and implement the system.  The Emergency Management Agency was given responsibility for implementing the new system.  After many months of hard work, the system "went live" on May 10, 1990 with the first call being placed at 9:11 A.M. by then County Commission Chairman, Jimmy Davis.

Call volume has been on the increase ever since that first day and the center now tops 120,000 calls per year.
