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

About the Explorer Program

The LVMPD Explorer Program exposes young adults to a career in law enforcement by matching their interests in four specific areas: Crime Scene Investigation, Corrections, Dispatch, and Police. In addition to the training they receive, the LVMPD Explorer Program also aims to develop and refine qualities such as maturity, responsibility, character, civic duty, and personal fitness.


The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department is committed to our mission to protect the community through prevention, partnership and professional service. That commitment and dedication extends to the millions of visitors that Las Vegas plays host to each year. I'm devoted to making what I believe is the best police department in the country even better. - Sheriff Doug Gillespie
