EGPD SEEKS EXCEPTIONAL LATERAL DISPATCHERS

 

Dispatchers evaluate the information received, evaluate the proper course of action and dispatch the appropriate police response. Due to the nature of emergency work, Dispatchers will be required to work rotating shifts, including nights, weekends, and holidays. To start up the Dispatch Communications Center, the City’s priority is to fill the dispatch positions with lateral dispatchers. However, as part of our initial recruitment effort, the City is accepting all applications with the goal of developing an eligibility list to be used to fill future openings.
