Our History

In 2018, Following Illinois adopted public act 99-0006 requiring smaller Emergency Telephone System Boards (ETSBs) and Dispatch Centers to consolidate their operations and facilities; four agencies, including Romeoville, EastCom, Lincolnway, and the Will County Sheriff's office, merged into one consolidated dispatch center now known as the Laraway Communications Center or LCC for short.
