Salem, Danville getting more money for 911 call centers

Posted: Updated:

911 call centers throughout Virginia are getting more money thanks to a state audit.

A study by the Virginia Information Technologies Agency found several emergency centers were not getting the proper amount of money based on call volume from 2010-2012.

That means areas like Salem received more than $36,000 from the Commonwealth to make up for the shortfall.

For Danville it's a windfall of nearly $200,000.

But most communities saw the other end of the audit.

Bedford, Franklin, and Montgomery counties lost between $4,000 and $7,000 in future money, a relatively small amount.

Others like Roanoke City and Roanoke County each lost nearly $60,000.

The good news is the money can be spread over three years.

Roanoke City's E-911 Manager Mike Crockett said the drop in future money won't have any impact on services or responses.
