Tri-Com Central Dispatch


Tri-Com began operating in May 1976 after the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration, a federal grant program, commissioned the Illinois Institute of Technology to do a study of Kane County to determine the need for the service. The tri-cities was one of the five areas cited for grant money to develop the dispatch system. Because of various grants made available to Tri-Com, the tri-cities had to invest only 5 percent of the $500,000 cost.
