MetroComm, the LVMPD's dispatch center receives over 3 million calls and dispatches officers to nearly 600,000 events per year. Dispatch Explorers use state of the art simulators to learn exactly how to take critical 9-1-1 emergency phone calls and how to send officers to calls for service using the Computer-Aided Dispatch system.
Dispatch Explorers also get first-hand experience as they sit with LVMPD dispatchers and listen in on incoming 9-1-1 and 3-1-1 lines as well as the actual police radio. In addition, Dispatch Explorers work in conjunction with CCDC, CSI and Police Explorers and act as dispatchers during training scenarios.
Dispatch Explorers learn:
How to answer 9-1-1 and 3-1-1 calls
How to dispatch officers to calls
