Macoupin County

Macoupin County is one of the largest counties, by area, in the state of Illinois. It also comprises 2 area codes and is perhaps the only county in the United States that has 3 or more LATAs (Telephone Exchange Boundaries). The Enhanced 911 system in the county took over 10 years to get online.

  • Approximately 50,000 people in the county, with the Sheriff providing law enforcement to about 20,000. (2016)
  • As of 2016, Macoupin County Sheriff's Department handles most of the dispatching for the counties emergency services. All (about 30,000 a year) 911 calls come into the county dispatch (handles ETSB responsibilities).
  • Sheriff's department handled 8,518 calls in 2015.
  • Carlinville, Gillespie, Staunton and Virden still dispatch their own police. (2018)
