Jefferson County officials are trying to tighten their belt and one idea is to closer the 911 center.  They would then outsource the dispatch services to a 3-County Call Center in Condon. Sheriff Jim Adkins says the move would save enough money so they wouldn’t need to lay off patrol deputies.  “Tri-County Communications currently serves as a 911 center for Gilliam, Sherman and Wheeler counties.  Crook County has also been involved in talks to consolidate 911 services.”  Adkins says moving the dispatch center 85 miles away would not affect how Jefferson County residents receive emergency services.  The change could come within the next 3 to 6 months.
