The Communication Division works around the clock everyday of the year and is staffed with full time Communications Technicians.  Communications is the direct line of contact for anyone requesting any type of police service.  Communication Technicians take calls for service from the public and other law enforcement agencies, then dispatch the appropriate police personnel, as well as equipment to handle the incidents and situations reported.  Technicians also coordinate radio traffic between police units and serve as the officer's "life line" in times of danger and emergency.  They are trained to gather information from the caller in times of emergencies and are skilled with the ability to keep the situation under control while dispatching the information.  At the same time always keeping our officers' safety as their priority.
