Course Description

The role of the public safety dispatcher is vital in ensuring that environmental crimes, reported to law enforcement, are handled appropriately and efficiently. The safety of the public and the first responders investigating the call for service may hinge on whether a public safety dispatcher is trained to prepare law enforcement in their response to these calls. Dispatchers need to know the link between suspicious activity reports, pre-incident indicators and common environmental crimes. This 4 hour course will provide public safety dispatchers with the knowledge and skills to recognize and correctly respond to reports of environmental crimes.
