Today the Corpus Christi Police Department MetroCom Division graduated 11 very capable and energetic Public Safety dispatchers to their ranks.
The MetroCom Training Academy was a six-week classroom academy which started in late November.
It consisted of a Telecommunications Certification Course, Call Takers Training, TCIC/NCIC Training and Certification, Basic Dispatching skills using our computer aided dispatch system – Intergraph, City Geography, and Police Codes.
Public Safety dispatchers receive calls from individuals who need assistance from Firefighters, Police Officers, and Emergency Medical Services. Once information is obtained from the caller, these dispatchers activate the services necessary to respond to the nature of the call for help.
Dispatchers are an integral part of our organization’s success. Essentially, the dispatcher is the “Conductor” of the force, and is responsible for the direction of all units within it 24-hours 7 days a week.
Congratulation and we welcome you to the Corpus Christi Police Deparment,
