Cobb 911 Center Gets $2M Upgrade


The Cobb County Board of Commissioners agreed to pay Motorola $2 million to upgrade the county’s 911 call center.

The current system is more than seven years old, and the county’s emergency communication departments says it was at the end of its life after five years.

The new system will take administrative calls, 911 calls, provides latitude and longitude and downloads the coordinates onto a map. It also has a line dedicated to calls coming in from AT&T.

Within the next year, the new system will also allow callers to text in their emergencies. This feature is for individuals who may be hiding from intruders or violent situations.
