The Dakota Communications Center (DCC) is a joint safety project established by a partnership between 11 cities and Dakota County.
The (DCC) provides centralized state-of-the-art 911 and emergency dispatch services (police, Sheriff, fire, emergency medical) effectively, efficiently, and at a lower cost to taxpayers in all Dakota County cities and townships.
The partnership among the 12 Members began in late 2005. Members followed an aggressive schedule, which resulted in the opening of the DCC facility in December, 2007.
