It’s National Telecommunicators Week! Here is your Dispatch Fact for April 17:
Dispatchers of the Wichita Falls Police Department are all licensed through TCOLE (Texas Commission On Law Enforcement).
Thanks to House Bill 1090, passed in 2019, all Texas dispatchers are now considered 1st Responders along with Police Officers, Fire-Fighters, and Paramedics.
The Dispatchers of the Wichita Falls Police Department are very proud to wear the title and they do not take it likely when it comes to serving the citizens of Wichita Falls and Wichita County.
