Shelby County 911 Shows Off New Equipment

The Shelby County 911 program was facing a critical issue of being stuck with equipment that was 10 years old, and considered outdated and obsolete before a much needed upgrade brought the program back up to speed.
   Shelby County 911 Coordinator Mary Lu McConnell said that it was impossible to get replacement parts when something went bad with the equipment, and vendors would not support maintenance on the 911 software because it was so outdated.
   Shelby County 911 received a grant for $27,400 to go along with a loan that was taken out for $148,200.
   With the money the Shelby County 911 was able to make some major upgrades. “We were able to update our 911 call taking phone system, radio work stations, we now have two dispatch positions, and we are IP based,” McConnell said.
   McConnell explained that the new equipment is Internet based which makes repair work and troubleshooting less expensive and more efficient since it can be done remotely.
   “Next Generation 911 equipment can support multimedia interactions such as text messaging, images and videos. Texting to 911 will be possible in the near future for Shelby County residents,” she explained. McConnell added that the equipment helps coordinate data for more effectiveness in call routing and handling to aid in responses.
   “It supports open radio standards which allows integration of any radios, consoles and recorders into the new system,” McConnell said.

The Shelbina City Council approved permission to seek a grant to help with the cost of a new K-9 vehicle for the Shelbina Police Department during Tuesday night’s regular council meeting.
   Possible K-9 Unit Grant
   USDA Rural Development Area Specialist LouAnn Rongey attended the meeting and she and Shelbina City Marshal Jerry Fenton talked about the possible project.
   Rongey said the plan is for Rural Development to cover 55 percent of the grant, which Shelbina is eligible for, and they are looking for other grants, but ultimately, the City would be responsible for the other 45 percent of the cost.
   The total price including all of the equipment is $58,078. Rural Development’s 55 percent would be $31,900 and the City’s percent would be $26,178. She said there is no loan involved, it would be grant only for what they are looking at.
   Fenton said that they are looking at a County Restitution Fund that has to be geared toward narcotics. “All the drug arrests that we make, there is a portion of that fine money that always goes into the law enforcement restitution fund,” Fenton explained. He said they are applying for that to offset most of the remainder of the cost.
