Newaygo County 911 Central Dispatch

The Newaygo County 911 Dispatch Center is staffed by dedicated professionals who are highly trained to assist the community 24 hours a day. As a communications link between the citizens, visitors, and public safety responders, each call is handled with empathy and respect, and is disseminated to the proper service agency to ensure a response as quickly as possible. Through teamwork and exploring changing technologies, the staff continues to grow as a unit to provide courteous and efficient service to protect life, property, and the environment.


We offer a link to the Silent Observer program, where you may submit a “tip”. 

Please remember, if a crime is in progress, always call 9-1-1.


If you wish to contact Dispatch regarding a suspicious situation, we have created a reference sheet (see below) which will prepare you for the kinds of questions the dispatcher will ask.  This will help us gather the information needed to assist responders.


The FOIA Request Form is a link to the Newaygo County’s Freedom of Information department which allows you to request audio recordings.



Please call 9-1-1 for emergencies, Non-emergency calls should be directed to (231) 689-5288.
