Our Dispatch Center is a highly technical center with many pieces of modern technology. Our Dispatchers run 3 computers with 6 monitors at each Dispatch position. They use these systems to answer the many emergency and non-emergency phone calls, talk to emergency responders on the radio, answer text-to-911, track the locations of our emergency responders and dispatch emergency responders.
These systems track the location of callers and responders, which helps Dispatch give turn by turn directions to our responders to each emergency. They also have a multitude of resources available to them to help Patrol Deputies find property owners, cattle owners, vehicle owners, landlords and general citizens. They use a mass notification system to alert neighborhoods to police activity when we believe there is a specific threat to the public in that area.
In addition to the computer software that Dispatch uses, they also monitor 18 radio channels and take radio traffic from law enforcement, fire and EMS units.
A candidate that believes in partnership with citizens to make our communities safer.
