OPERATION QUARTER BACK REVENUE AND MULTI JURISDICTIONAL
Presentation By: Bob Wedgeworth, Rankin County E911 Coordinator Melissa Bryant, Rankin County E911 Database/Project Manager
WHAT CAN 911 REVENUE BE USED FOR? IF THE PROCEEDS GENERATED BY THE EMERGENCY TELEPHONE SERVICE CHARGE EXCEEDS THE AMOUNT OF MONIES NECESSARY TO FUND THE SERVICE, THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS MAY AUTHORIZE THE FOLLOWING EXPENSES: COSTS RELATING TO INDENTIFYING ROADS, HIGHWAYS & STREETS THE DEVELOPMENT OF COUNTY/DISTRICT COMMUNICATIONS & PAGING SYSTEMS; WHEN USED PRIMARILY FOR THE ALERTING AND DISPATCHING OF PUBLIC SAFETY ENTITIES. ADMINISTRATIVE COSTS SUCH AS MANAGEMENT & MAINTENANCE PERSONNEL & THE RELATED BUILDING & OPERATIONAL REQUIREMENTS.
CARRIER COST RECOVERY…WHAT DOES THIS DO FOR THE LOCAL 911 USER? APPROXIMATELY 30 OF EVERY DOLLAR PAID BY THE TAXPAYER IS RETAINED BY THE MS CMRS BOARD FOR THE CARRIERS. THIS FEE DOES NOT ENHANCE THE LOCAL 911 SYSTEM AND IS BASICALLY A METHOD FOR THE CARRIERS TO MAINTAIN & ENHANCE THEIR NETWORK AT THE COST OF THE TAX PAYER. BY RE-DIRECTING AN ADDITIONAL.25 CENTS BACK TO THE COUNTY LEVEL, THE COUNTIES WOULD REALIZE A SIGNIFICANT INCREASE IN FUNDING & WOULD PUT WIRELESS SERVICE FEES MORE IN LINE WITH THE TRADITIONAL LAND LINE FEES. NOTHING EXCEPT HINDER YOUR COUNTIES ABILITY TO MAINTAIN & PROVIDE THE SERVICE EXPECTED BY YOUR LOCAL CITIZENS! LET’S BREAK IT DOWN:

MULTI JURISDICTIONAL OBJECTIVE To illustrate a path for obtaining proficient and economical Multi Jurisdictional Next Generation capable public safety answering points throughout the State of Mississippi.
PSAP (Public Safety Answering Points) Monetary restrictions have placed a need to end an obsolete mindset in regards to PSAPS. A true public servant searches for efficient ways to provide outstanding safety not only to the general public but to all emergency service personnel as well.
PRODUCTIVE AND EFFICIENT What can be gained through cooperative efforts and multi jurisdictional agreements: Amplified interoperability Decreased staffing demands Enhanced redundancy in equipment Reduction of equipment needs and costs Improved proficiency within agencies = TAX DOLLAR SAVINGS
AT THE TIME OF THIS PRESENTATIONS CREATION THERE WERE: 5 COUNTIES THAT ARE CURRENTLY PHASE 0 – BASIC FCC REQUIREMENTS FOR WIRELESS 911 CALLERS; PROVIDES NO CALLER INFORMATION AT THE PSAP. 13 COUNTIES THAT ARE CURRENTLY PHASE 1 – THE WIRELESS CALLERS PHONE NUMBER AND THE CELL TOWER ADDRESS IS DISPLAYED AT THE PSAP. 58 COUNTIES THAT ARE CURRENTLY PHASE 2 – THE DELIVERY OF THE ESTIMATED LOCATION OF A WIRELESS CALLER WITH X;Y COORDINATES AND THE DISPLAY OF THE PHONE NUMBER AT THE PSAP. AND 6 COUNTIES THAT ARE CURRENTLY NEXT GENERATION CAPABLE – CAPABILITY TO RECEIVE SMS (TEXT) AT THE PSAP AS WELL AS MMS (PICTURES & STREAMING VIDEO) WHEN AVAILABLE WIRELESS PHASES OF 911
PHASE O (5 COUNTIES) PHASE 1 (13 COUNTIES) PHASE 2 (58 COUNTIES) NG911 HOST CAPABLE (6 COUNTIES) CURRENT STATUS FOR THE STATE OF MISSISSIPPI *AT THE TIME OF THE CREATION OF THIS PRESENTATION
RANKIN COUNTY MODEL Rankin, Harrison, Desoto, Forrest, Warren and Jackson Counties have the ability to expand Next Generation 911 Hosting Service to other counties. Rankin County has offered Next Generation 911 Hosting Services to the following counties: Scott County * Simpson County * Newton County Leake County Jasper County Smith County * Scott and Simpson Counties have entered into agreements with Rankin County and have Next Generation 911 capabilities.

RECOMMENDATIONS PARTIALLY BASED ON PEER REPORT #579 1.To control expenditures and improve efficiency, emergency communications districts (ECD’S) should implement the following: Where applicable, ECD’S with more than one PSAP should consolidate or co- locate into one central PSAP. Where applicable, ECD’S should consolidate with neighboring ECD’S or enter into interlocal agreements in return for a fee.
RECOMMENDATIONS CONTINUTED: 2. To improve expenditure controls and improve the accountability of the 911 service delivery system, the Legislature should revise the following: Amend MS Code Ann. § to provide specific statutory guidance in regard to how ECD’S may expend funds. Require ECD’S operated by a board of supervisors to be included in the county audit conducted by the Office of the State Auditor (MS Code Ann. §  . If the ECD is established as a separate fund entity with a board of commissioners separate from the county audit, the ECD should contract for an audit. Expand the authority of the current CMRS board to establish a centralized entity to oversee aspects of the implementation of the 911 service delivery system in MS. Examples of this expanded authority should include the power to enforce efficiency standards to ECD’s, the power to audit an ECD, and the power to establish equipment procurement guidelines.
RECOMMENDATIONS CONTINUTED: 3. Contingent on ECD’s implementing efficiency improvements, and should the Legislature consider additional funding for ECD’s, the Legislature should consider the following to reduce the disparity between revenues and expenditures: Amend MS Code Ann. §  to redirect the portion of future CMRS service charges currently allocated for the reimbursement of actual cost incurred by the providers. Such funds should be reallocated to increase the 70% disbursement of CMRS service charges to ECD’s to 100% disbursement for those ECD’s that enjoin in the state plan. Amend MS Code Ann. §  to redirect the portion of future CMRS service charges currently allocated for the reimbursement of actual cost incurred by the providers. Such funds should be reallocated to increase the 70% disbursement of CMRS service charges to ECD’s to 95% disbursement for those ECD’s that enjoin in the state plan.
RECOMMENDATIONS CONTINUTED: 4. To improve efficiency the Legislature should implement a four (4) year repealer to ensure that the requirements and standards are being met.
SUMMARY CITIZENS OF THE STATE OF MISSISSIPPI BELIEVE THE 911 FEES ARE PUT INTO PLACE TO ENHANCE LOCAL 911 SYSTEMS AND SERVICES. OPERATION QUARTER BACK ASKS FOR NO ADDITIONAL FUNDING FROM THE TAXPAYERS. THESE MONIES ARE ALREADY BEING PAID BY THE TAXPAYER. THIS PLAN MERELY REDUCES THE SUBSIDY PAID TO THE CARRIERS. RESTRICTIONS OF POPULATION AND FUNDING SHOULD COMPEL OFFICIALS WHO ARE CHARGED WITH MISSISSIPPI EMERGENCY COMMUNICATIONS TO DEVELOP MULTI-JURISDICTIONAL AND INTEROPERABLE PSAPS THROUGHOUT THE STATE. THIS PLAN WILL HAVE A POSITIVE IMPACT ON EVERY 911 SYSTEM THROUGHOUT THE STATE OF MISSISSIPPI PROVIDING THE SERVICES THAT TAXPAYERS EXPECT FOR THE FEES PLACED UPON THEM. IT WILL ALLOW ALL COUNTIES AND JURISDICTIONS THE ABILITY TO ACHIEVE THE TECHNOLOGY AND SERVICE THAT THEY MAY NEVER BE ABLE TO AFFORD AS A STAND ALONE PSAP.
