In the late 1980’s Gary Allen, a California police dispatcher, started a monthly newsletter Dispatch Monthly. As time went on Gary started the now defunct website 911dispatch.com. The site was a treasure trove of information about dispatching, 911, scheduling, and anything else you could want to know about this industry. Gary retired in 2015, closing his site and unfortunately passed away shortly after.

One of the most notable aspects of Gary’s site was his Tape Library. He hosted hundreds of 911 calls and radio audio dating back to 2006. It was a major loss when 911dispatch.com closed and these tapes were “lost”. We have managed to recover the vast majority of the tapes and are happy to host them here. We plan to combine this amazing archive with the one we are slowly building. The tapes are organized as they were on 911dispatch.com, into “reels” by year, and listed below.
