Public Safety Dispatch

The City of Dover Public Safety Dispatch Center window is located in the main lobby of the Dover Police Department at 46 Chestnut Street. It is open 24 hours per day, 365 days per year.

The Public Safety Dispatch Center is the processing point for virtually all police and fire department telephone and computer communications entering (or leaving) the police department. It is also the main hub for all radio communications.

In addition to many other duties, dispatchers have the primary responsibility for initial deployment of public safety personnel and equipment to calls for service.
