This is EXACTLY what I'm interested in...to see how counties move supervision and control from the sheriff to the commissioners with an advisory board making recommendations and providing information to help determine protocol, etc. I will need to look further into Hamilton County's operation and the others who have been mentioned here. Thank you all for your input!

With the impending dispatch consolidation there will be an "advisory board" consisting of appointed personnel from the user agencies that will contribute to the decision making process but will still be under the ultimate control of the HC Board of Commissioners.
(This is what we've been told (as dispatchers) and this information is subject to change (likely daily...))
