Dispatching for Emergency Response and Pursuit
This course provides law enforcement dispatchers with knowledge and skills necessary for communicating during an emergency response or pursuit situation. Classroom instruction, video/audio critique and roll play exercises concerning situational stress, information necessity and communication techniques will be followed by actual on-track in-car demonstrations. This will provide dispatchers a perspective from inside the cruiser. Dispatchers will also have the opportunity to drive a simulated response and pursuit using state-of-the-art simulators.
The day of training will culminate with realistic dispatch scenarios. Dispatchers will handle communications for mock chases as they are actually taking place on the driving facility.
Note: This class takes place in conjunction with the Vehicle Response, Pursuit and Control Class (Formerly "Tactical Driving") and will begin promptly at 8:00 AM. Students should dress for the weather. Helmets will be provided; however, students may bring their own DOT-certified helmet if desired.
