I am pretty sure Derry Township has their own dispatch center and dispatchers that are referred to as "Derry" instead of "County" but every once and a while, like just now, I hear what sounds like a county dispatcher talk to a Derry PD unit using the name "Derry". This last time was when an officer accidentally hit his emergency button. Does anybody know if Dauphin County also dispatches for them? Or are their voices just super similar?

Derry Twp. has their own dispatch, but only handles PD. Dauphin Co. handles Fire/EMS.

The last time it was suggested Dauphin take over, the county estimated at least 1 channel to handle Derry's workload, possibly 2 during the crazy busy summer days with multiple events.

Voices probably sound the same. I know when I moved counties for a job, I swore up and down I heard the same people!
