The Telecommunications Division is the central communications center for the Dunn Police Department. We have an 800MHz system and a CAD (Computerized Automated Dispatch) system. This enables us to dispatch police, fire and rescue by computer.
We have two telecommunicators per twelve hour shift. All our telecommunicators are EMD (Emergency Medical Dispatch) Certified, which allows us to provide pertinent medical information to the medic before they arrive on any scene. We also handle incoming calls into our center including many calls for the detective division and administration.
