Indiana’s PSAPs
136 WE911 call taking PSAPs in 92 counties
Most counties are consolidated for 9-1-1
– 13 counties with primary / primary PSAPs
– 11 counties with primary / secondary PSAPs
Unconsolidated counties are:
– highly urbanized
– college towns
– challenging terrain for
dispatch radio coverage
#1 challenge to consolidation is radio inter-operability

Top 9-1-1 issues
“competitive neutrality”
leading to surcharge pick-and-choose
–wireless 50¢ a number
–wireline 35¢ to $3.00 a phone line
declining funding / changing call volumes
barriers to implementation
–access to equipment
not owned by the PSAP
“statutory erosion” by the old guard
