Job Description for Police Dispatcher

A police dispatcher is the first person contacted when emergency assistance is requested. Dispatchers generally work within call centers or actual police stations; while they work in shifts, the position itself is 24-7, so some may be required to work weekends or overnight shifts. They may work either alone or on teams with other dispatchers depending on the size of their department. Educational requirements are not strict, aside from a high school diploma or equivalent; initial training is available on-the-job and ongoing training is often required. Aspiring dispatchers should also be familiar with a variety of technological equipment.
