Area Map2

SNOCOM, a consolidated emergency public safety dispatch agency was created in 1971 by its founding entities: the cities of Brier, Edmonds, Lynnwood, Mountlake Terrace, and Woodway, as well as Snohomish County Fire Protection District #1 and the Snohomish County Sheriff's Office.

SNOCOM was one of the first consolidated Police/Fire/EMS dispatch centers of its type in Washington. On September 11, 1973, SNOCOM began providing 911 services to the citizens of Southwest Snohomish County, giving dispatchers additional information about the caller's location, which results in enhanced dispatch accuracy and response time.

In 2001 the agency celebrated its 30th anniversary by moving into a modern new facility to better serve the community and accommodate added technology needed to perform its mission.

Proud of the service provided to our citizens, SNOCOM is equally proud of its relationship with those user agencies they are in partnership with. This unique partnership is the foundation of SNOCOM's support and success.

Through the years SNOCOM employees have, and will continue to provide, excellent customer service in a thorough and professional manner.

Gone But Not Forgotten


This memorial wall was started after the law enforcement community suffered some terrible losses beginning in October 2009.

One of the agencies that lost several officers gave SNOCOM a patch as a thank you for supporting them in their time of need. Dispatchers Cheri Barker and Lindsay Payton decided to take on the project of “Gone but Not Forgotten” so the patch could be displayed. Letters were sent to police and fire agencies all over Washington state requesting patches to commemorate fallen officers and firefighters. As SNOCOM was established in 1971, it was decided that would be the beginning year for our memorial.

SNOCOM now houses the “Gone but Not Forgotten” memorial wall in which all agencies  that have lost a police officer or firefighter in the line of duty since 1971 will be remembered  forever. This was our way for agencies, families, as well as our community to know that we sincerely  appreciate what our police officers and firefighters do. It is an honor to be able to display a patch for each agency. Each and every fallen hero will be missed and remembered, forever!
