TUCSON, Ariz. -- The Pima County Sheriff's Department said it has resolved the second issue that caused its new 911 system to have an outage this week.

The Sheriff's Department said backup facilities are no longer being used and that the system is fully functional.

The 23-minute outage Monday afternoon affected 54 callers from unincorporated areas.

The department's dispatch center moved last weekend to a new 911-dispatch center in Tucson.

The new $102 million Pima County Wireless Integrated Network is an emergency radio dispatch system that will allow first responders from local agencies to talk to one another on radios.
