Emergency Dispatch (911)
The Union County 911 Director is Kathy Cantrell.
The 911 Emergency Dispatch Center is located at 106 East Union Street.
The 911 Emergency Dispatch Center does not have a published non-emergency number, but when not handling emergency calls, they also answer the administrative lines for the Union County Sheriff: (765)-458-5194 and Liberty Police: (765) 458-5721.
The Emergency Dispatch Center is staffed at all times and receives telephone calls for emergency services and dispatches the appropriate response agencies, including local law enforcement, fire department and emergency medical services. When needed, they also dispatch state emergency response agencies and coordinate communication between agencies during emergencies.
In cooperation with neighboring jurisdictions, the Emergency Dispatch Center also answers "rollover" calls for Wayne, Fayette, Franklin, Butler (OH) and Preble (OH) county emergency dispatch. These organizations provide the same backup service for Union County through interlocal agreement.
