New Release

 

     On June 21, 2018, the city of Paragould opened its state of the art communications facility.  The role of this was to become more efficient in the way emergency services are provided to the citizens, from initial call to the conclusion.  All dispatch services were moved to the new center, while all records keeping staff remained at the police dept.  In continuing our commitment for efficiency in directing non-emergency calls to the appropriate points without multiple transfers, we are instituting an automated attendant.  This attendant is focused solely on the direction of non-emergency calls with undue delay from calls for fine payments or records, which closes at 6:00 p.m..  

 When a citizen calls they will have several options;

Option 1) If you need a police officer, this selection will direct the caller immediately to the dispatch  Center.    

Option 2) making or inquiring about a fine payment, this option will place the caller in contact with the Greene county District Court.

Option 3) will place you in touch with the Paragould Police records dept. 

There will be no change in emergency calls, as citizens will still dial 9-1-1

Citizens should expect this attendant to be put in place between Jan 16-18,
