UMATILLA COUNTY — The Umatilla County Sheriff’s Office Emergency Communications Center has resolved an issue with its phone systems that began May 15 and affected T-Mobile and VOIP callers and dispatchers' ability to hear one another.

“We believe this issue has been resolved,” Umatilla County Sheriff Capt. Sterrin Ward reported in a statement Monday, May 22. “Working together with multiple vendors, it was determined to be an issue originating from outside of our dispatch center, as other 911 centers throughout the state also reported issues. Our center will continue to monitor and report any future issues, but for now, it appears to have been resolved.”
