THE SUN CITY POSSE RADIO DISPATCHER:
Dispatchers; A service we cannot do without:
What does the Dispatcher do?
Dispatchers run the radio and are
assisted by a Phone Operator at
the Dispatcher's side.
Both routine and emergency calls
for service of a non-Law
Enforcement nature are sent to
the Patrol Units as appropriate.
What calls are dispatched?
We responded to 15,114 calls for
assistance in 2013; of these 5,284
were Rescue Calls by the Sun City
Fire Department. Way too many
traffic accidents, often with
injuries. Posse Patrols are
dispatched to help the Deputies
with traffic control and many
other support functions.
Our Radio Dispatchers ensure that Posse Patrol Units
are placed on scene of emergencies and non- emergency
incidents. This is an extra layer of service to the Sun
It is the mission of the
Duty Officer to ensure
that all these Patrol Posse
Members are at--all times--
safe when they go out in
their Patrol Districts.
Maricopa Sheriff Deputies
and the D.O. keep patrols
out of harm's way.
