Participant: Capt. Tod Dahle, Support Services, Fargo Police Department, North Dakota
Listen to Full Interview (duration time: 20:16:00)
- Can you tell us a bit more about the governance of the Regional Dispatch Center and how it has evolved?
- How does the project governance fit with the Centerís Board of Authority?
- From what youíve said, it sounds like most Steering Committee decisions are made by consensus.
- More and more agencies across the country are regionalizing communications and dispatch services, but few cross state lines.
- Did experience with your earlier regional radio system project help prepare the Steering Committee for regional CAD/RMS project and long-term governance?
- The river that separates the two states is notorious for flooding, including record levels in Fargo last year. I imagine that the shared problem brings the region together in many ways despite legal boundaries.
- In closing, what are your take-away messages for the long-term governance of regional CAD/RMS projects?
