Input sought on Eastside dispatch center

When assessors from a police accreditation agency look next month at the Eastside Regional Communications Center's performance, they will gather public input.

As part of an on-site assessment by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, people who live and work in Bellevue are invited to offer comments by calling 425-452-2838 between 1 and 3 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 7.

The Eastside Regional Communications Center provides emergency 911 and dispatching services to 14 Eastside fire agencies and two police departments.

"Verification that the Eastside Regional Communications Center meets the Commission's state-of-the-art standards is part of a voluntary process to remain accredited -- a highly prized recognition of law enforcement professional excellence," said Communications Center Manager Alan Komenski.

Telephone comments are limited to 10 minutes, and must address the Communications Center's ability to comply with CALEA's standards.  A copy of the standards is available at the Bellevue Police Department.

Written comments can be sent online to CALEA or by letter to: Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, 10302 Eaton Pl., Suite 320, Fairfax, VA 22030-2201.

Assessors from CALEA will arrive Saturday, Jan. 5, to examine all aspects of the Communications Center's operations. The Communications Center is seeking reaccreditation.
