Harvey County Communications was established in January 1982 with the merger of the dispatch operations for the Newton Police Department and Harvey County Sheriff's Office.

Communications moved into a 2,700-square foot center in the basement of the Harvey County Law Enforcement Center in 1997.

Our staff has been honored for the quality of its work on several occasions. The Kansas chapter of the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials has named a Harvey County dispatcher Telecommunicator of the Year in 1999 (Liz Sauerwein), 2003 (Don Gruver) and 2006 (Diana Dover). In 2016, the entire staff was named Kansas APCO Team of the Year for its efforts in several incidents.
