Telecommunicators are the vital first-link between citizens and police.  Their professionalism and performance contributes directly to keeping our community safe.

Standards

During 2011, the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement changed the rules relating to Telecommunicators to include more stringent selection standards, an increased employment standard, and mandatory basic and in- service training for licensing. In response to the TCOLE rule changes, the Communications team completed a new employee training manual, a set of updated standard operating procedures and a new employee performance assessment guide.
