* Today Dunwoody uses DeKalb's 911 dispatch service. Service levels have been uneven and inconsistent. Often DeKalb's 911 center answers quickly and dispatches efficiently. At other times they have more incoming calls than they can handle and calls are put on hold for 1-10 minutes before a dispatch agent answer the call. This delays dispatch of police, fire and emergency medical.

Building our own 911 center or partnering with another nearby city would cost more than we pay deKalb today.
