The East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office Communications Division is dedicated to providing outstanding service to the citizens of this parish.

The process of screening and prioritizing calls for assistance and then accurately dispatching to suit the public's specific needs are the foundation of our daily duties. Our center is connected via computer network to the Baton Rouge City Police, EMS, Baton Rouge Fire, Baker, and Zachary communications in an effort to promote inter-operability between agencies. We are currently located at the Advanced Traffic Management, which houses City Police, Fire and EMS.

Currently the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office is cooperating with the parishes that form the State of Louisiana's Region II, as well as the State of Louisiana, in the use of a 700/800MHz digital radio system that incorporate new tower sites established by parish and city agencies, and existing state run tower sites to form a statewide radio system. In addition to providing for the day-to-day operations of the Sheriff's Office, this new system provides a gateway for inter-operable communications between participating agencies, during special events or emergency incidents that require multi-agency and/or multi-parish response. The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office is dedicated in being one of the first agencies in Region II to use this system for day-to-day operations and to also take full advantage of the system's inter-operable capabilities.
