Public Safety Dispatchers are the first line of communications with the general public, whether answering 911 emergency calls or handling non-emergency requests for service for both the Police and Fire Departments. Public Safety Dispatchers (911 Operators) attend to incoming calls on twelve 911 phone lines, five non-emergency lines, and one silent witness line. Dispatchers enter all calls for service into the Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) system, classify and prioritize the calls, and dispatch public safety personnel where they are needed.
Other duties required of this position include processing and filing incoming paperwork, warrants and article entry into the state and national crime database, criminal history inquiries, and numerous other tasks to keep the internal operation of the department organized and efficient.
Supervisors in the division perform as “working supervisors”, executing all of the above functions in addition to supervision of the center operations, scheduling, employee evaluations, records requests and special projects assigned by the Communications Manager. The PSCC is currently under the direction of Carla Reece.
