Public Safety Dispatch is a highly rewarding career field and is ideal for the person who first and foremost likes to help others. Qualified applicants must communicate well, have strong multi-tasking abilities and be able to work well under pressure or in stressful conditions. Dispatchers are highly skilled, trained professionals who are often the first point of contact for most people experiencing an emergency or traumatic event. Often the unsung heroes, Dispatchers are dedicated to providing the first line of help until Police, Fire and Medical personnel arrive on scene.
Attendees will learn more about the roles & responsibilities of being a dispatcher, speak with recruiters from different Law Enforcement and Fire agencies and obtain information on the hiring process.
Participating agencies include: Ontario Police, South Bay Regional Public Communications Authority, Orange County Sheriff’s, Corona Police, La Verne Police, Pomona Police, Long Beach Police/Fire, CONFIRE JPA, Azusa Police, Rialto Police, CHP, LAPD, San Bernardino Police, Montebello Police, Irvine Police, Upland Police, San Diego Sheriff’s, Los Angeles County Fire, Cathedral City Police, Costa Mesa Police, Inglewood Police, Redlands Police, CAL Fire, Beverly Hills Police, Riverside County Sheriff’s, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s, and US Army.
