When I dial 9-1-1 why doesn’t my call get answered by my police department?

The communities of Elmwood Park, Oak Park, Park Ridge, and River Forest have combined to form WSCDC. The Telecommunicators at WSCDC answer your 9-1-1 call and dispatch the necessary resources including police, fire, or EMS. There are many financial and operational benefits to consolidating multiple villages into one 9-1-1 center.
