Director of Communication/Warrants Division, Donna Capps
Assistant Director, Jessica Collins
The Communications Division handles all 911 calls for Levy County and dispatches full-time for Cedar Key Police Department and dispatches for Chiefland Police Department after midnight, on holidays and weekends, local volunteer Fire Departments, EMS Rescue Units, Levy County Animal Control, and Levy County Citizens on Patrol.
The Communications Section has constant communication with or monitors State Warning Point which is used for reporting of plane crashes, tornadoes, hazardous waste spills or any road closures or fires. DTN Weather Satellite gives us Satellite images of current and future weather conditions that may pose a threat to the residents of Levy County. The Communications Section also monitors the warning system for the Crystal River Nuclear Power Plant, which informs us of any drills, leaks, or potential evacuations or meltdowns.
Emergency 911 Addressing

The Levy County Addressing Office provides a comprehensive and uniform system of permanent road addresses for all residences and businesses throughout the County in order to facilitate the provision of adequate public safety and emergency response services. Countywide road names and addresses help law enforcement and emergency services departments save lives and property by reducing the time it takes them to reach the scene of an emergency.
