dispatch center

The Communication Center is the Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) for the City of Fremont and the City of Union City. We answer calls from the public and provide dispatching services to both communities. We have a state of the art communication center located at the Fremont Police Department. The police dispatchers work as a team. They are responsible for answering 9-1-1 and non-emergency calls and determining what type of assistance is needed. Police Dispatchers receive and transmit radio communications with officers in the field. Dispatchers keep track of officers in the field as well as dispatching officers to calls for service. They also have the ability to monitor allied agencies in our region. The Communication Center averages over 800 phone calls per day and dispatch officers to close to 300 incidents daily.

Staff

We are hiring! When we are fully staffed we will have 6 Dispatch Supervisors and 27 Dispatchers. If you’re seeking a career in Law Enforcement we are actively looking for people to join our dispatch team. The ideal candidate is someone who can multi-task, think critically and remain calm when faced with life threatening situations over the telephone and radio. Fremont Police Dispatchers were honored in 2016 by the Northern California Association of Public Safety Communications chapter as Communications Team of the Year.
