ETCOG's PUBLIC SAFETY DEPARTMENT
Working in partnership with state and local officials, ETCOG has been tapped as the primary planning and coordinating entity for Emergency 9-1-1 Communications in East Texas. We work with the State to have fully deployed, advanced 9-1-1 services for wireless callers and help plan for Next Generation 9-1-1. We also support first responders and plan regionally for disasters by partnering with the Texas Office of the Governor to coordinate Criminal Justice and Homeland Security Planning. ETCOG provides training to law enforcement personnel through support of the East Texas Police Academy and oversees the Regional Juvenile Services Program.
