Dispatch Hiring Photo
The City of Duluth, Georgia is accepting applications for the position of COMMUNICATIONS OFFICER in the Duluth Police Department. Communications Officers provide a vital service to the community by contributing to the safety and welfare of their fellow residents. They are the first point of contact in most emergency situations.

Communications Officers are responsible for operating emergency and non-emergency police radio, telephone, and computer communication systems. This is a complex, multi-tasking, and critical life-safety position—this means you must be able to talk on the phone, talk on the police radio system, and enter computer data all at the same time. Frequently this occurs under stressful conditions during emergency events where accurate and timely communication is critical to the safety of the public and the police officers.

MINIMUM AND DESIRED QUALIFICATIONS
The individual should possess office or clerical experience and must have a high school diploma or state-issued GED. Previous experience in emergency radio/telephone operations is desirable, but not required. Must have moderate keyboarding/computer skills and be able to work individually and in a team.

BACKGROUND INVESTIGATION
All applicants are subject to an extensive background investigation, including criminal history background, drug testing, vision/hearing/medical exam, psychological evaluation, and polygraph. Individuals must be able to obtain state certification as a Communications Officer within 6 months of employment, which involves the successful completion of a state-mandated two-week classroom training program off-site. Additionally, you must successfully complete 11-16 weeks of supervised on-the-job training and demonstrate the skills necessary to perform the job.
