On Monday, July 10th at 9:00am, the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office will be launching a new public use, non-emergency dispatch telephone number (541) 265-0777. This number will be unique to Sheriff’s Office dispatch requests for deputy response and crime reporting of incidents that do not meet criteria for utilizing the 911 emergency line.
The implementation of this unique Sheriff’s Office telephone number will allow our dispatch center, the Willamette Valley Communications Center (WVCC), to better serve Lincoln County residents with efficient dispatching of Sheriff’s Office resources.
“We are very pleased with this transition to a unique non-emergency dispatch number for the Sheriff’s Office,” according to Lincoln County Sheriff Curtis Landers. “This will provide our citizens with a direct line to the WVCC for Sheriff’s Office response requests which will better serve their law enforcement needs.”
“It will also provide additional detail of the call volume and service levels WVCC is providing for our Sheriff’s Office,” added Sheriff Landers.
