Sumner County 911 is a part of the Kansas Next Generation 911 System and use highly sophisticated IP networks and databases to receive, locate, and process calls for emergencies.
SCEC conducts vehicle registration and driver's license checks through DMV, and checks the status of wants and warrants for field units. Dispatchers also monitor the teletype system for "Be On The Lookout" broadcasts as well as AMBER, Silver, and Blue Alerts.

Dspatchers make entries, modifications, clearances, and cancellations for wanted persons and stolen property into the National Crime Information Center database.
SCEC is the consolidated dispatch center for Sumner County public safety agencies. We dispatch law enforcement, fire, EMS, and Emergency Management to the calls we receive, coordinate their response, and document information about the response. We send additional resources that may be needed at the scene, as well as help when a responder finds themselves in an emergency.
SCEC also handles field generated incidents such as followup investigations and traffic stops.
Dispatchers monitor the teletype system, NOAA Weather Radio, and the media for weather watches and warnings issued by the National Weather Service. These alerts are relayed to responders so they are aware of the weather, in addition to keeping an eye on the sky.
