|Springfield Police Department Emergency Communications
It is the duty of the Springfield Police Department Emergency Communications Center to provide
the citizens of Springfield and neighboring towns with a vital link to Emergency Services.
We will collect information that is needed to provide
service and assistance in the most efficient and safe manner
and often under stressful situations.
We strive to improve our ability, provide accountability and grow as necessary to ensure professional service to our
community and beyond.
We answer all SPD incoming lines, 6 of them, and "Hot Line" calls for Springfield Fire and Ambulance along with dispatching for same.
The Communications Center is currently made up of 4 Full-time Dispatchers; 1 Permanent Part-Time Dispatcher; and 2 Part-Time Dispatchers.
Administrative Assistant Richard Stillings has retained his Dispatch qualifications and assists on a part-time basis as well.
Normally we work only one Dispatcher per shift. Due to heavy call volumes at specific times of the day, we have instituted the position of a
Permanent Part-Time Dispatcher to help during these documented heavier times.
Dispatchers at the Springfield Police Department also have a multitude of collateral duties for which we are responsible to perform.
From the complexities of being the computer tech for the entire department, to tasks as simple as filing paperwork. Each Dispatcher is
responsible for approximately 10 collateral duties each, which includes being back-up to one another's duties during their absence yet does
not include court case preparation which is performed by all of us.
