The Cortez Communications Center oversees communications related to public safety and emergency services in Montezuma County through services provided for eleven user agencies including the Cortez Police Department.
The center is equipped with progressive communications technology in order to maintain a high quality of service for the User Agencies. The center is equipped to handle Text to 911, although we get limited request for service through that avenue.
The Cortez Communications Center Dispatchers are certified through the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials, International (APCO ) as Basic Telecommunicator I and Emergency Medical Dispatchers. We use APCO standards for our training officers and instructors as well.
