Saratoga County Sheriff's Office oversees the Emergency Communications Center. In 1988, Saratoga County went on line with an Enhanced 911 system. Since that time, the Communications Center answers both hard line 911 calls and cellular 911 calls.
The Communications staff has grown over the years to meet the call demand for emergency and non-emergency calls for service.
Saratoga County's 911 Center is staffed 24/7 with 36 personnel committed to answering the needs of county residents and visitors. The residents and visitors populate 814 square miles.
In 2016, Sheriff Michael Zurlo, at the approval of the County Board of Supervisors, appointed Administrative Sergeant Steve Gordon to the position of Director of Communications.
Currently the Communications Officers dispatch 32 fire agencies, 11 EMS agencies, County Sheriff's patrols, State Police patrols within Saratoga County as well as local police agencies that do not have their own dispatch point.
Please keep in mind Dialing 9-1-1 is for in-progress emergencies such as car crashes, a fire, robbery, domestic violence, prowler, a need for an ambulance and much more. Keep in mind, when dialing 9-1-1, it is for the area you are located in. If you have an emergency in another county or state, your local 9-1-1 center may not be able to help you.
For Non-Emergency calls to the Communications Center, you can dial 518-885-6761 option 1 or 518-885-5522
