The communications division has four full-time employees and is responsible for documenting all calls for service. In addition, the Communications Division monitors video surveillance equipment, assists with the recording of offense reports, and maintains records on the various alarm systems within the district.

The communications officers are aided by Computerized Automated Dispatch (CAD), which enables both accurate and precise recording of police activity and rapid record retrieval for 44 sworn officers. In addition to CAD, the communications officer has direct access to our in-house computer system, ARMS, as well as the national and state law enforcement computer networks (NCIC/TCIC) along with the Southeast Texas Crime Information Computer (SETCIC).

The Communications Division is operational 24 hours a day.
