Sugar Grove police, fire departments join Tri-Com

SUGAR GROVE – The Sugar Grove police and fire departments announced Thursday that they will join St. Charles-based Tri-Com Central Dispatch, according to a news release.

Tri-Com is a regional police and fire dispatch service that hosts agencies in a consolidated operation. According to the release, the Sugar Grove Police Department will benefit from sharing costs and resources, joint operating procedures and interoperability.

“The residents of Sugar Grove will have no delay in dispatching the necessary emergency service, when service is needed,” the release stated. “The police administration examined the benefits of joining a regional dispatch center and carefully reviewed Tri-Com’s operations. Tri-Com is well staffed, very well trained and equipped. This will be a seamless transition from the existing service to Tri-Com.”

Randy Diecke of the Batavia Fire Department, the Tri-Com Board chairman, said Tri-Com was “happy with Sugar Grove’s decision to join Tri-Com, who has the technology to meet their needs.”

“Such consolidation will help achieve better economies of scale within the dispatching arena of Kane County,” Diecke said in the release.  

Sugar Grove Village President Sean Michels said “it is important for our residents to have state-of-the-art technology helping in a critical time.”

“By switching to Tri-Com, our emergency personnel will be well equipped to respond to every incident,” Michels said in the release.
