Communications Operators are essential in emergency services. We have a dedicated group of Nationally Certified Emergency Police and Fire Dispatchers that provide communications and dispatch services to the Taber Police Service and many fire departments located with the MD of Taber.
Our Communications Operators do much more than simply dispatch. They are the first contact the Taber Police has for people making complaints, asking questions, or wanting help 24/7/365. Communications Operators are also responsible for handling complaints from the public, answering Town of Taber emergencies calls, all aspects of data entry and maintenance of police records systems, assisting the police in the laying of charges and creating court packages, etc.
Our Communications Operators are supervised by the Public Safety Communications Manager who reports to the Chief of Police.
