Communications Division

Our Communications Division is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by our fully trained police dispatchers who are P.O.S.T. (Peace Officer Standards and Training) certified, the same training as the municipal police or sheriff's department dispatchers within the State of California.

We answer both emergency and non-emergency calls and can dispatch:

  • Police Services
  • Fire Services
  • Ambulance
  • Tow Services
  • Other non-emergency agencies (i.e. animal control)

Use 9-1-1 to report any crime in progress. Be ready to tell the dispatcher:

  • WHAT HAPPENED
  • WHO WAS INVOLVED
  • ANY INJURIES
  • DESCRIPTION OF THE SUSPECT(S)
  • IF ANY WEAPONS WERE INVOLVED
  • LAST KNOWN DIRECTION OF TRAVEL
  • WHERE THE VICTIM IS

Remain on the line until the dispatcher says otherwise, they may require more information from you even after police units have been dispatched.
