We think it's great you are interested in a dispatching career with us! A dispatcher serves as the central coordination point between police officers, emergency services and the public. Two-way radio and computer software is used to dispatch calls for service, coordinate emergency and non-emergency police activities and provide vehicle and driver information to law enforcement officers. The dispatcher must quickly obtain all of the important facts related to an incident and dispatch the necessary police, fire, or emergency medical service units.

Dispatchers rely on computers to track incidents, monitor the officer’s status and retrieve criminal, vehicle and driver’s information from state and national data bases. Dispatchers must be able to work in a high-energy environment and be willing to serve as the communications life-line for the public and public safety personnel.
