PH: 9-1-1 (For EMERGENCIES only) 
Non-Emergency: (812)-349-2781

The Central Emergency Dispatch Center (CEDC) is located at the Bloomington Police Department at 220 East 3rd Street.  There is a total of twenty-four (24) full-time and one (1) part-time employees who work around the clock every day of the year to serve and protect the community.  The CEDC answers both emergency and non-emergency phone calls for all fire, ambulance, and police jurisdictions in Monroe County except for Indiana University.   

Since the CEDC services all these jurisdictions, the Sheriff’s Office provides funding for only ten (10) full-time and one (1) part-time dispatchers.  In addition to answering calls, this Division is responsible for dispatching officers and all first responders while assuring their safety as they respond to calls for service.
