State 911

Formed in 2016, the State 911 Department provides administrative support to Nebraska's Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) and communications providers. Work is currently underway on the implementation of a Statewide Next Generation 911 System (NG911). Next Generation 911 will provide redundancy and resiliency to a statewide system, dramatically improving call routing and location accuracy providing for the free flow of multi-media information for citizens in need of emergency services.

Our Mission is to provide statewide planning, implementation, coordination, funding assistance, deployment, management and maintenance of Nebraska's 911 service system to ensure coordinated 911 service is provided to all residents and visitors of the state at a consistent level of service in a cost-effective manner.

David Sankey has served as Director of the State 911 Department since September 2016. He has more than 30 years of Public Safety experience in Nebraska, having served 27 years with the Nebraska State Patrol. A graduate of the FBI National Academy and the National Executive Institute, Sankey holds a bachelor's degree in Criminal Justice.
