St. Joseph County names new Executive Director of 9-1-1 Communications
ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. -- Julie Tobey, an eight-year veteran of St. Joe County 9-1-1 dispatch, has been named as the new Executive Director of the St. Joseph County Communications Center.
Tobey was formerly responsible for dispatching police, fire and emergency medical vehicles across all of St. Joe County, and was named the Indiana Dispatcher of the year in 2019.
Co-workers and county officials believe that she is the right person for the job thanks to her dedication, as well as more than a decade of experience working in her field.
According to county commissioner, Derek Dieter, Tobey is already looking forward to making improvements in her new role.
“In addition to having the previous director recommending her and all the area leaderships of police and fire, I think it's going to be a good thing, and she's very intent on improving what they have there already,” said Dieter.
Tobey has served in the interim role since February, when previous director, Ray Shultz, stepped down after four years in the position.
