It’s National Telecommunicators Week! Here is your WFPD Dispatch Fact for Tuesday, April 14:
In an effort to comply with the City of Wichita Falls Social Distancing Policy, the WFPD Communications section is now split up into 2 different locations in order to create a level of distance between employees. The Wichita Falls Police Department maintains a back-up center located at 610 Holiday for dispatchers to work out of in the event the main center on Flood Street is inoperable. Currently, there are dispatchers working out of both facilities. Using state of the art equipment, our dispatchers are able to provide the same level of service to citizens although working out of 2 different locations. They are currently working 12 hour shifts, serving the citizens of Wichita Falls and Wichita County.
Thank you to all of our dispatchers! We appreciate you!
