Deschutes County is purchasing new software for the 911 Dispatch Center. It will cost a little more than $1.1 million. “This was one of the issues that were part of the ballot measure when we passed the 2008 serial levy.  What had happened is we have an extremely dated records management system for law enforcement.” Deschutes County 911 Services Director Rob Poirer says another problem dispatchers now have is the current system doesn't integrate well with emerging technologies.   For example, he says the new system will increase efficiencies by such options as allowing filing of minor police reports on line.   It may take up to a year to phase in the new software. Poirer says the annual maintenance cost will be about $200,000.
