Position Details

The City of Waukegan, Illinois invites candidates to test for the position of Telecommunicator (TC).

The City of Waukegan has one immediate opening for a TC and will establish a list of applicants for future vacancies.

The TC receives emergent and non-emergent telephone inquiries and requests for Police, Fire and Emergency Medical Services within our city.  The Communications Division is staffed 24/7 by 21 full-time, highly trained TCs.  

TCs work 8.5 hour days on a 5/2, 5/3 rotating schedule, 3 shifts per day.

The Waukegan dispatch center utilizes the Tyler Technologies - Computer Aided Dispatch program (CAD). In addition to the CAD technology, the Waukegan Dispatch center also utilizes “Priority Dispatch” Emergency Medical Dispatching (EMD) pre-arrival questioning, as well as “SOLACOM” call handling equipment. These systems will be implemented at the future consolidated dispatch center for Lake County, IL.
