As an emergency dispatch operator for the Anne Arundel Police Department, I worked independently to assist callers by ascertain the nature of their call as well as their locations to determine the best response. The response may require the dispatch of police, fire service, and or emergency ambulance service. I prioritized calls and follow establish procedures to determine whether to dispatch non-emergency or emergency services. I routinely make record of each call and dispatch. I used computerized data systems and a teletype network to retrieve and update information regarding wanted persons, stolen property, vehicle registrations, and stolen vehicles. I acted as a liaison to other law enforcement agencies and communicated information when needed. I maintained access to and secured highly sensitive materials. Status charts for emergency response field units were reviewed to determine availability of units. I examined alarm registers and maps to determine whether a specific emergency is within the dispatch service area. I also provided directions to locations using small scale maps. Routinely, I answered inquires and referred calls that do not require dispatch units to the appropriate departments and agencies. CAD Computer System was an essential part of training new hires. I ensured new hires were properly trained and could understand the system before they were allowed to work independently.

I trained new hires on the Vesta Phone System which utilizes emergency medical systems and non-emergency call system which has multiple trunk lines. Orion Mapstar Data was also a part of the training as it is used to plot the locations of emergency medical systems and cellular phone calls. New hires were trained on how to plot locations manually as well. I obtained passing grades to maintain my certifications.
