How Dispatch is Changing in Arvada?
Arvada Police are dispatched as part of the Jefferson County Communications Authority ( Jeffcom 911) system. Jeffcom 911 is the consolidation of eight public emergency service answering points in Jefferson County into one centralized communications center. The decision to transition to a consolidated communications center was based on best practices within the emergency services industry to provide the most efficient level of service to residents and emergency services personnel of Jefferson County. The Jeffcom 911 center, located in Lakewood, Colo., brings together Jefferson County communities in a centralized location to most effectively coordinate and respond to emergencies.
Jeffcom 911 services eight agencies of Jefferson County and the surrounding districts they cover, and functions as a vital link between emergency services and the community in Jefferson County. The communications center collaborates with local fire, police and emergency medical services providers to dispatch appropriate emergency responders, as well as to provide support for public safety education. Jeffcom 911 dispatchers are prepared to respond to more than 18,000 calls and answer approximately 50,000 non-emergency calls per month. Jeffcom 911 will provide the highest level of service and public safety for hundreds of thousands of residents.
Why Jeffcom 911?
Jeffcom 911 will enhance the emergency response process for residents, but residents don’t have to do anything new or different when faced with an emergency. The same emergency (911) and non-emergency phone numbers will remain in effect and the same police, fire and emergency medical services personnel will respond accordingly.
While Jeffcom 911 will provide efficiencies for communities and residents, it does not replace important programs like Smart911 and CODERed that are already in place. These programs work together to provide maximum coverage to residents in need.

- Arvada Fire Protection District
