ERLANGER PUBLIC SAFETY COMMUNICATIONS CENTER
The Mission of the Erlanger Public Safety Communications Center is to contribute to the safety and quality of life in our community by linking the citizens of our community, our neighboring communities and our associated public safety agencies with efficient, reliable, responsive and professional public safety communication services.
The Erlanger PSCC currently has a staff of 10. The administration of the PSCC is headed by Mr David Leonard.

The PSCC is also supplemented by part time staff members who assist in handling 911 and non-emergency calls for service. Three telecommunicators are crossed trained as Crime Analysts.
