About SCEC

Established in 1995, Sumner County Emergency 911 Communications (SCEC) is the Public Safety Answering Point for Sumner County, and the consolidated dispatch center for the law enforcement, fire, EMS, and

Emergency Management agencies serving the County.

SCEC is a County-Government agency under the auspice of the Board of County Commissioners through an appointed Department Head.  It is not affiliated with any law enforcement, fire, or EMS agency.

Emergency 911 Communications

is the vital link between those who live, work, and visit Sumner County and the law enforcement, fire, EMS, and emergency management professionals who respond to their call for help.

What We Do

Yes, We Answer 911 Calls (But it's much more than that.)


Sumner County 911 is a part of the Kansas Next Generation 911 System and use highly sophisticated IP networks and databases to receive, locate, and process calls for emergencies.


SCEC conducts vehicle registration and driver's license checks through DMV, and checks the status of wants and warrants for field units.  Dispatchers also monitor the teletype system for "Be On The Lookout" broadcasts as well as AMBER, Silver, and Blue Alerts.


Dspatchers make entries, modifications, clearances, and cancellations for wanted persons and stolen property into the National Crime Information Center database.


SCEC is the consolidated dispatch center for Sumner County public safety agencies.  We dispatch law enforcement, fire, EMS, and Emergency Management to the calls we receive, coordinate their response, and document information about the response.  We send additional resources that may be needed at the scene, as well as help when a responder finds themselves in an emergency.

SCEC also handles field generated incidents such as followup investigations and traffic stops.


Dispatchers monitor the teletype system, NOAA Weather Radio, and the media for weather watches and warnings issued by the National Weather Service.  These alerts are relayed to responders so they are aware of the weather, in addition to keeping an eye on the sky.


SCEC is also responsible for monitoring the National Warning System terminal assigned to Sumner County through the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
