"There are a lot of mapping programs across Mississippi, but here in Webster County, we feel that GeoComm Dispatch Map is the best that you can get in Mississippi. Before GeoComm Dispatch Map, we would get basic information from 9-1-1 calls — the telephone number [and] close location of where the caller was located. With this software we will get an exact location of where 9-1-1 callers are, basically, within four or five feet of where the phone is."
