Pasco County leaders to discuss 911 center issues

PASCO COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) — Issues with the 911 call center will be top of mind Tuesday morning in Pasco County. Leaders are expected to discuss ongoing problems at the center during a county commission meeting.

Sheriff Chris Nocco recently said that he’s concerned there isn’t proper leadership inside the center.

“There’s hard working men and women in there, but you know when they’re short staffed and haven’t been without a permanent leader for 18 months, things are going to fall through the cracks,” Nocco said. “That’s why we’re out there. That’s why we’re advocating saying ‘Let’s fix these things.'”

The sheriff proposes having a sheriff’s office captain at the call center as a director and a fire service supervisor as an assistant director. Both would report to the county commission and the sheriff’s office. The goal is to have more accountability on both sides.

The center has been criticized over the past year for delayed response times.
