The dispatcher is the first person you will talk to when you call the Police Department. Dispatchers are trained to handle a variety of situations. They can direct your call to the appropriate person, or department. They can send help such as the Police, Fire and EMS.
Our dispatchers are very skilled and not only dispatch for the Pauls Valley Police department, they also dispatch for: Pauls Valley Fire Department, Elmore City Police Department, Elmore City Fire Department, Katie Fire Department and Pernell Fire Department. Not to mention they answer the telephones for each of the agencies as well as answer the phone for all 9-1-1 Emergency calls for the Pauls Valley and surrounding area. Being a dispatcher is very busy and stressful at times, but dispatchers are the lifeline for Police Officers and for you when you need help. Things to remember when calling for assistance.. 9-1-1 is for life threatening emergencies ONLY.
