Welcome to the Dunn County E911 Communications Center. The Dunn County Communications Center was established as a joint venture between the City of Menomonie and Dunn County in 1995. At that time an Enhanced 911 (E911) Program was put in place providing all citizens of Dunn County access to the emergency number 9-1-1. The communications center is staffed 24 hours a day with a minimum of two telecommunicators at all times, with additional staff at peak hours.

The dispatch center not only processes emergency calls, but also processes numerous other activities in support of personnel, such as dispatching and monitoring primary and backup units, investigators, contacting and relaying pertinent information to the field, and to other agencies and businesses. Dispatchers also answer non-emergency incoming calls to the Menomonie Police Department and Dunn County Sheriff’s Office. E911 dispatchers are also responsible for coordinating the communications for multi-agency events and major incidents that occur in Dunn County.


The communications center is not a division of the Sheriff’s Office, however, works closely with the Sheriff’s Office and other emergency service departments throughout the county.


The 911 center is the Public Safety Answering Point for ALL 911 calls placed in Dunn County. Dispatching is provided for the following agencies:


  • Dunn County Sheriff’s Office

  • Menomonie Police Department

  • UW Stout Police Department

  • Boyceville Police Department

  • Colfax Police Department

  • Elk Mound Police Department

  • Menomonie Fire Department

  • 11 Volunteer Fire Departments

  • 8 Ambulance Agencies

  • Dunn County First Responders.
