Communications Specialists serve as Call Receivers and Dispatchers. As a new Communications Specialist you will receive classroom and hands-on training to be able to take both emergency and non-emergency calls in a high volume call center. Some calls require call receivers offer resources or instructions to callers, make referrals to other organizations or persons and write routine police reports for less serious crimes. They also answer complex, emergency calls that require the call receiver to use appropriate de-escalation and interviewing skills to gather necessary information before routing the information to the appropriate Dispatcher.
