About JECC

Overview

The Joint Emergency Communications Center of Johnson County (JECC) is the clearing house for all 9-1-1 calls and all Emergency Communications for Johnson County. The JECC serves as the epicenter for emergency communications for all citizens of Johnson County. The Johnson County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) is also located in the same facility.

The JECC serves the public 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year with specially trained dispatchers to answer all emergency calls for assistance. These operators receive and/or transmit emergency telephone, radio, alarm, and other types of data over multiple computer systems, then analyze it in a timely manner for the purpose of relaying the information between citizens and first responders during emergencies in order to preserve life and property.

Another important responsibility of Emergency Communications Personnel is the accurate entry and removal of wanted persons, articles and vehicles in NCIC. This includes providing, on demand, the results of NCIC queries made by field units.
