Communications / Dispatch

In July of 2018 the City of Merkel partnered with the Taylor County Sheriff's Office to take over the full time 911 Communications and Dispatch Center responsibilities for the City of Merkel Emergency Services, to include the Merkel Police Department and Merkel Volunteer Fire Department.

Since the partnership between Taylor County and the City of Merkel, dispatch capabilities and response has improved greatly, making the Merkel Police Department more efficient and effective to service the community.  If you have an interest to serve the community as a telecommunicator, click here.
