Morro Bay Public Safety Transitions to Regional Dispatching


Yesterday at 10:00 a.m., Morro Bay Public Safety transitioned to regional dispatching. Morro Bay Police, Fire and Harbor will now be dispatched by the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office and Cal Fire. This new regional approach is designed to enhance and improve public safety responses through the regionalization of dispatching services. The Sheriff’s Dispatch Center, and Cal Fire, will improve coordination for multiple jurisdictional responses during emergencies, as well as, improve organizational efficiency through the employ of multiple dispatchers who can field multiple calls from the public and respond to radio traffic from officers simultaneously.
