Paulding E-911 Hosts Law Enforcement Officials From Mexico

DALLAS, GA -- On Wednesday, Nov. 17, Paulding County E-911 hosted a tour of the 911 Center for the police commissioner of the city of Monterrey, Mexico.

A city of approximately 1.3 million people, Monterrey is the largest industrial center in Mexico and is looking to upgrade its emergency communications center. The city chose two 911 centers in Georgia to visit to observe operations and see how computer-aided dispatch systems work in a U.S. public safety environment.

Paulding County E-911 was selected for the recent upgrades in its 911 technologies.

"[Police commissioner] Garza was interested in observing how our computer-aided dispatch systems, marketed by InterAct Public Safety, and our new SolaCom NG-911 telephone system might benefit the City of Monterrey," said David Mumford, director of Paulding County E-911. "It was an honor to have an international visitor to observe our operations."

During his visitor, Commissioner Garza had the opportunity to meet with Paulding County commission chairman David Austin.

"Paulding County is happy to partner with Monterrey, Mexico," said Austin. "It was great to meet Commissioner Garza. Any way that we can help our neighbors from other states or countries, we are glad to do it."

Commissioner Garza also visited Forsyth County 911.

Paulding County 911 has been host to numerous 911 centers from across the country in the past few months.

"We have seen visitors from Florida, South Carolina, Texas, as well as agencies within Georgia, who are interested in our technology," said Mumford.

"It is exciting to know we were one of the first to put the SolaCom telephone system in use on the AT&T network," said Austin. "If we can help other cities, states or countries, we are glad to be of service. My thanks to Director Mumford for all the attention he has put into getting this telephone system operational."
