KNOX COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) – Rob McMullen started as the Knox County interim 911 director on Tuesday.
He said his agreement with commissioners is to remain in the position until a long-term director has been appointed.
“They’ve got a lot of great, hard-working folks in there 911 center,” McMullen said. “We’re just going to work on bringing them back up into the future.”
He plans on working with a company called RapidSOS, which will help dispatchers identify exactly where a call is coming from. He described the technology as using similar location tracking as the Uber app.
