East Peoria’s dispatch center is part of Tazewell County Consolidated Communications, also known as TC3. The consolidation of telecommunication centers throughout the state was mandated by the State of Illinois, and East Peoria consolidated with the dispatch centers in Morton, Washington and Pekin.
There is a tan phone in the Public Safety Building on the right side of the lobby. This phone is a direct contact to the telecommunication center. The caller will tell their issue to the telecommunicator on the other end of the phone line. The telecommunicator will then send an East Peoria Police officer or Fire Department officer to the Public Safety Building to meet with the caller.
People needing police or fire reports and commercial burn permits related to construction will need to come to the Public Safety Building between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. There is a sign in the lobby directing people how to contact police and fire department personnel.
