The only way to assess the situation and determine the appropriate police response is to ask very specific questions. Our Communications Operators require information from callers in order to ascertain if the situation requires police attendance or whether you can come to our office during regular office hours to make a report or speak with an officer.
When the information indicates a call for service is necessary, Communications Operators are, in effect, the “eyes and ears” of the police officers who respond. They need to know as much as they can about the incident, which they then convey to the responding police officers. This can be vital to the officers’ safety and important for the caller as well.
In a developing situation, things may change and the Communications Operator needs to be able to convey new information to police officers who are at the scene or en route. It’s important to know if a situation is getting worse, but it’s also necessary to know if the emergency is over.
Communications Operators have considerable experience in dealing with stressful situations and following established procedures and protocols. While it’s very difficult to deal with someone in obvious distress, our Communications Operators remain focused in order to help the caller. They know they can’t do their jobs effectively if they panic or get emotional.
All calls for service which require police attendance are prioritized within the mandate of the Police agency. Although the caller may feel traumatized by an incident, Communications Operators do their best to calm them and dispatch police officers in a timely fashion. They will also endeavour to advise you of the estimated arrival time of the police officer.
