Dispatch Center

 Lyon County Sheriff's Office Dispatch Center

The Lyon County 911 Emergency Dispatch/Communications Center is comprised of ten dedicated dispatchers who work 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, on a variety of shifts.   The dispatchers are responsible for answering all emergency and non-emergency calls for service and gathering the necessary information needed to determine the proper response.  The dispatchers then facilitate contact with police, fire and ambulance services in Lyon County, along with fire and ambulance services for portions of surrounding counties.  The dispatchers are also responsible for the exterior doors to the Lyon County Jail, the camera system in the Lyon County Government Center and the Lyon County Jail.
When should I call 911?
  • Call 911 anytime you have an emergency.
How does 911 work?
  • When calling 911 from your home phone the address for the phone line, the phone number you are calling from, and the name of the telephone account holder will appear for the dispatchers to see.  The location of the address you are calling from will also be displayed on a map.  Along with this information the 911 system will alert the dispatcher of which emergency service agencies cover your location.
  • If you call 911 from a cell phone; your phone number, cell phone provider, and most often the GPS coordinates of your location will be displayed.  Your location according to the provided GPS coordinates will also be displayed on a map.  The GPS location will be within 14 to 20 meters of your actual location.  Like a land-line, the 911 system will also provide the dispatcher with what emergency service agencies cover your location.
  • If you call 911 and either hang up or the line becomes disconnected the dispatcher will make a return phone call to you to verify that everything is ok.  Depending on the situation the dispatcher may have an officer also respond to your location as well.
  • When calling 911 the dispatcher will ask you several questions to verify your location, the location of the emergency, and the nature of the emergency.  The first question the dispatcher will likely ask you is; What is the address or location of your emergency?  This is done to ensure we have the proper location of the emergency in case contact is lost with the caller.  Once the dispatcher has obtained the preliminary information he or she will dispatch the appropriate emergency services.  You will not be able to hear the dispatcher doing this.  Once emergency services have been dispatched the dispatcher will obtain more detailed information from you, therefore it is important to stay on the line until the dispatcher states that it is ok to hang up.
Next Generation 911 (NG911)
  • Like with everything else technology is allowing advancements in how 911 and other emergency services are accessed and provided.
    NG911, when operational, will allow callers to contact 911 via text message, and send video files or digital photographs of incidents as they are occurring.  Lyon County is currently in the process of having equipment installed to allow for this technology.
  • Please stay tuned for further information on when this service will become available.

7. Where can I find a list of approved firearm training classes?
The BCA no longer publishes a list of firearm instructors on the website, but does provide a list of the Approved Business Organizations that the BCA certifies for training classes for the Minnesota Personal Protection Act. The Approved Business Organizations certify the instructors that teach for them. Individuals need to contact those organizations for instructor information.

https://dps.mn.gov/divisions/bca/bca-divisions/administrative/Pages/firearms-training.aspx.

Do members of the military need to take additional firearms training in order to apply for a permit to carry?
Although members of the military received superb firearms training, they must receive training from an instructor that has been certified by an approved business organization in Minnesota. This additional training pertains to the legal aspects of “permit to carry issues”. Military members can contact their local sheriff’s department for further clarification and consideration.

14. What would prevent me from getting a permit to carry?

Any applicant who does not meet the criteria as listed in number 5 above is not eligible for a permit to carry a pistol. The sheriff may also deny the application if there is a substantial likelihood that the applicant is a danger to himself/herself or others if issued a permit to carry.
15. Are predatory offenders prohibited from obtaining a permit to carry?
Yes. It is a misdemeanor for a person required to register as a predatory offender to carry a pistol. 16. Where is my Minnesota permit valid?
Minnesota permits are valid throughout the state of Minnesota.

Individuals interested in determining whether a Minnesota permit to carry is valid in another state should contact that state directly to determine what the carry laws are. You may also find other resources on the Internet to assist you. 17. Do I need to have my permit with me when carrying my pistol?
Yes, the permit holder must have the permit card and a valid driver’s license, state identification card, or other government-issued photo identification in immediate possession at all times when carrying a pistol and must display the permit card and identification document when requested by a peace officer.
18. Do I have to disclose to a peace officer that I am a permit holder and carrying a firearm?
Yes, upon request of a peace officer, a permit holder must disclose to the officer whether or not the permit holder is currently carrying a firearm. 19. Do I need to notify the Sheriff’s Office when I move?
Yes, a permit holder is required to notify the issuing sheriff’s office within 30 days of a permanent address change. Failure to do so is a petty misdemeanor. 20. Do the address and/or my new driver’s license number on my permit to carry need to match the address and/or drivers license number on my driver’s license?
No. A permit holder, however, is required to notify the issuing sheriff’s office within 30 days of a permanent address change. Failure to do so is a petty misdemeanor.

22. If I have a permit to carry a pistol do I have to conceal the pistol?

No. Minnesota’s Personal Protection Act is a permit to carry law, not a conceal and carry law. The pistol does not need to be concealed, but can be concealed. 23. If I have a permit to carry a pistol do I need to apply for a permit to purchase if I want to purchase a handgun?
No. Under Minnesota law, handgun transfers involve any sale, gift, loan, assignment or other delivery to another person. If you possess a valid permit to carry a handgun, that permit constitutes a permit to purchase. You don’t need to apply for a separate permit to purchase.
