The event is sponsored annually by the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials (APCO) International.


The Communications Division of the Fayetteville Police Department receives an average of 1500, 9-1-1/other calls per day.  The Division serves as a vital link between the citizens who live in and visit our city, as well as the police officers and fire fighters who are responding to their calls for assistance.


Each call and radio transmission is different, they range from a routine call for service from a citizen to an officer who reports they are being fired upon and is requesting assistance.
