Communications and Dispatch
The University Police Department operates an Emergency Communications Center serving the Hayward and Contra Costa Campuses that is staffed by a Public Safety Dispatcher 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Dispatchers are technically trained, non-sworn members of the department who are required to satisfy specific Peace Officer Standards and Training principles and complete a certified Dispatcher course. Dispatchers monitor requests for general and emergency assistance via information desk, radios, telephones, faxes, teletypes, alarms and coordinate a response via an enhanced 9-1-1 Public Safety Answering Point system. Dispatchers are also responsible for monitoring the radio frequencies local law enforcement agencies and coordinating requests for outside agency assistance.
