  Genesee County 911


In 1972 the concept of a centralized dispatch system for police and fire services was born through the efforts of (the late) Mt. Morris Township Police Chief Charles Dunlay and the Michigan State Police.

Through their efforts and cooperation, an addition was built on the rear of the old State Police Post located at I-75 and Corunna Road to house this service. In the beginning the Genesee County Central Dispatch was responsible for answering telephones and dispatching of services to 6 police agencies and 7 fire departments.

The citizens in those areas were advised to call a seven-digit number, which exists to this day as a part of our Emergency Answering system. In mid-1973 the operation began with State Police Sergeant Lloyd R. Fayling and 13 State Police dispatchers.

As the system progressed and more agencies / communities became involved there was significant growth. In 1986 when the State 911 Enabling Act came into affect all communities in Genesee County chose to take part with the exception of the City of Fenton.

In the early 1990's the Michigan Department of State Police was strongly encouraging the local units to take over the operation. In 1996, in conjunction with the Urban Cooperation Act and the Emergency Telephone Service Enabling Act,  the Genesee County 9-1-1 Consortium was born. Lloyd R. Fayling retired from the Michigan State Police and became the Director of the Genesee County 9-1-1 Consortium. On July 26th 2015, Director Fayling passed away unexpectedly. Lloyd had overseen the operations of Genesee County 9-1-1 for 43 years.

The end of 2015 began several changes for the agency. The City of Flint, who began dispatching its own emergency services in 1995 returned to the Consortium after 20yrs on its own and Deputy Director David C. Ackley was named the Centers new Director.  The agency also went through a big growth spurt, increasing its dispatching staff from 33 to 53. In March of 2016, Tim Jones, a retired police Lieutenant with he Flint Twp Police Dept, was named the agencies Deputy Director and in April of 2016, David Plumb one of the centers 9-1-1 Supervisors was named the Operations Manager.

 Genesee County 9-1-1 continues to keep up with  new technology as it is introduced. In September of 2016 we started receiving Text to 9-1-1 calls. As more advances are made we will keep you updated.
