Southeastern Arizona Communications (SEACOM) is a joint initiative by Cochise County and Sierra Vista to create an independent 911 Communications Center serving all of Cochise County. SEACOM went live on July 18, 2018 when both Cochise County Sheriff’s Department dispatch staff and Sierra Vista Police Department’s dispatch staff moved into a new facility together. Huachuca City Police Department’s dispatching will be moved to SEACOM as of February 4, 2019. Currently SEACOM dispatches for all Cochise County Sheriff’s office, Sierra Vista Police Department, Sierra Vista Fire & Rescue, Fry Fire District, and 18 other rural fire departments. SEACOM is authorized for 29 employees, including the Director, two Assistant Directors, a GIS staff person, and 24 Communications Officers.
