Officials from the Onondaga County 911 Center, Syracuse Police and Syracuse Fire have been discussing ways to further protect police officers when they’re called in for help from EMS. It follows a State Attorney General’s Office report released in late January into an officer involved shooting last June in Syracuse. The report found what the AG’s office claims is a gap in communication between the three agencies on this call that resulted in the death of DeWayne Watkins. Julie Corn was only a few weeks into her new job as Commissioner of the Onondaga County Department of Communications – 911 when this happened. “When something like that would happen somebody comes down and makes sure the commissioner is notified immediately. And, I remember that day very well,” she tells NewsChannel 9.
