St. Cloud, MN: On November 15, GeoComm will initiate a comprehensive study reviewing
five Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) in Salt Lake County, Utah. The project will assess the
operations, systems, and facilities of the five Salt Lake County PSAPs which service the Salt Lake
City Police Department, Salt Lake Valley Emergency Communications Center, Unified Police Department
of Greater Salt Lake, University of Utah Police Department, and the Utah Department of Public
Safety Salt Lake Communications Center.
According to Greg Ballentine, GeoComm's Director of Consulting Services, "GeoComm is pleased to have been
selected by the State of Utah for this important project. We have assigned a stellar team to conduct this assessment
on behalf of the participating agencies."
The project will consist of multiple phases examining the current call delivery systems,
governance, operations, technology, organizational structure, and facilities supporting public safety
communications in Salt Lake County. GeoComm will use the results of the assessment to provide a comprehensive
report and recommendations that will serve as a resource for the participating agencies as they consider
options to enhance public safety services.
The agreement between the State of Utah and GeoComm is for five years and will provide the Utah 9-1-1
Committee guidance for studying other portions of the 9-1-1 system within the state.
