I started dispatching in 2009 for JASCO and loved it, I left JASCO in 2011 and was PRN for Barton County from 2011-2012 and decided to further my career in Criminal Justice and received my Bachelor in Science for Criminal Justice in 2019. I've been the director since November 2021. Dispatching is a job that is rewarding for those who do it, but not often recognized by others. We are the heroes no one sees, but we are the voices they hear when they are having their worst day.
Apply in person at 1010 Cherry St in Lamar. You can find more info on open positions on our Facebook page.
Police, fire, and ambulance dispatchers answer emergency and nonemergency calls. They quickly determine the type of emergency, its location and the response needed, then relay that information to the appropriate emergency responders.
No previous experience is needed but is a plus. Must have the ability to multitask. Have basic knowledge of computers and be able to work in a fast paced environment.
