Responsibilities

The lifeline of any public safety agency is its telecommunications center. Without these pivotal information brokers, the public and the police officers themselves are presented with a myriad of potentially fatal safety issues. The Hanahan Police Department Telecommunications Center is responsible for dispatching police, fire, and medical services to citizens of our community.

Trained telecommunications specialists man the 9-1-1 system and coordinate emergency assistance for anyone in need. This division also maintains all telecommunications equipment designed for deaf persons as well as the Department’s National Crime Information Center.

Commanding Officer

The Telecommunications Department is directed by the Local Agency Security Officer and Technology Director, David Kornahrens.
