The Communications Bureau serves as the information center of the Mission Police Department. Many times, citizens' first contact with a member of the Mission Police Department is made when they call our communications center. Dispatchers are trained to handle all types of calls from non-emergencies to life threatening situations. Upon receiving a call dispatchers must decide the appropriate agency or service that needs to be called upon.
Our dispatchers are responsible to answering several telephone lines, 911 Emergency lines, monitoring up to 8 police radio channels all while dispatching officers to calls for service.
We have a staff of 15 Communications Officers who man the Communications Center 24 hours a day.
