911 Executive Board Looks at Restructuring the Agency


Rob Poirier just left as 9-1-1's  Director and the board is using the opportunity to revisit whether the county should still oversee the program.

 

For the last three years, the county has run 9-1-1, but before that different law enforcement agencies did.

 

Deschutes County Administrator Tom Anderson says they are re-examining the structure of the agency.

 

"9-1-1 has a long history of short term directors.  I wasn't here, but I believe they switched to the county operating it to see if that would stabilize it, by giving it the support of county government.   It was hoped it would provide a greater chance for long term stability and improve how 9-1-1 was operating."

 

Anderson believes the agency was running well under the county's leadership -- but the 9-1-1 Executive Board will meet again next month to decide if they'll make any changes to who runs it.
