Yes, the city utilizes a computer-aided dispatch system. We enter the location into the system, and which agency to respond to incidents at a location. Upon receipt of a recorded Service and Annexation Agreement, the Grants Pass Public Safety Department will change the responder on the property to the City for both police and fire, and from that point, the city will be responding.
The city would be delighted to assist in forming neighborhood watch groups, working with areas for fire protection, and taking similar actions to promote the public safety of areas under our protection. The city will eventually be responsible for Public Safety Services to all of the urban growth boundary, and we are willing and able to provide service to individual properties under Service and Annexation Agreements.
