Metro 911 may come under Sheriff's Dept.
The Kanawha County Metro 911 Executive Board will likely vote today on a proposal to transfer oversight of the Metro 911 Center to the Kanawha County Sheriff's Department. Johnny Rutherford is the Metro 911 director, and he's leaving in January to serve as Kanawha County Sheriff after winning the November election. To transfer oversight, it's a matter of working out an intergovernmental agreement. The 911 Center is also getting a new computer dispatch system and telephone system.
