LPD Communications TransparentThe Communications Center provides the police and fire divisions with immediate informational needs during normal operations and during emergencies. The Communications Center is tasked with handling all telephone calls, radio communications, walk-in traffic, alarm monitoring, and data entry.  The Communications Center is a Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) for the 911 system.  The Communications Center is also responsible for emergencies involving other City departments that occur after normal operating hours. The Communications Center Dispatchers provide information to other law enforcement and public service agencies and to information storage facilities and retrieval subsystems as well. For more information, visit the Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau website.

Communications Center Staff
Since it is vital that the information is accurate and quickly delivered, the Dispatchers must be flexible and professional in order to meet the needs of the police division and the community. Nine full-time Dispatchers staff the Communications Center. The Communications Center is part of the Support Services Bureau and works in support of the Patrol Section.
