The eligibility list established may be used to fill upcoming vacancies within this classification for up to one (1) year. THE POSITION The ideal candidates should be able to deal effectively with a diverse public in routine and emergency situations and demonstrate high communication skills. Prior experience as police, fire, or medical dispatcher is highly desirable. The City has implemented Emergency Medical Dispatching (EMD) for all communications personnel. DEFINITION Under immediate (Public Safety Dispatcher I) or general (Public Safety Dispatcher II) supervision, receives police and emergency calls and dispatches police and fire units following prescribed procedures; answers non-emergency calls for public safety and other City departments; performs a variety of general administrative support duties including record keeping, typing, and filing; and performs related work as required. SUPERVISION RECEIVED AND EXERCISED Receives immediate (Public Safety Dispatcher I) or general (Public Safety Dispatcher II) supervision from assigned supervisory or management personnel. Exercises no direct supervision over staff. CLASS CHARACTERISTICS Public Safety Dispatcher I - This is the entry-level classification in the Public Safety Dispatcher series. Initially, under close supervision, incumbents learn and perform routine tasks in both emergency and non-emergency situations. As experience is gained, assignments become more varied, complex, and challenging; close supervision and frequent review of work lessen as an incumbent demonstrates the skill to perform the work independently. Positions at this level usually perform most of the duties required of the positions at the Public Safety Dispatcher II level but are not expected to function at the same skill level and typically exercise less independent discretion and judgment in matters related to work procedures and methods. Work is usually supervised while in progress and fits an established structure or pattern. Exceptions or changes in procedures are explained in detail as they arise. Public Safety Dispatcher II - This is the fully qualified journey-level classification in the Public Safety Dispatcher series. Positions at this level are distinguished from the Public Safety Dispatcher I by performing the full range of duties as assigned, working independently, and exercising judgment and initiative. All activities must be performed within specified legal guidelines. Positions at this level receive only occasional instruction or assistance as new or unusual situations arise and are fully aware of the operating procedures and policies of the work unit. This class is distinguished from the Senior Public Safety Dispatcher because the latter provides technical and functional direction to lower-level staff. Positions in the Public Safety Dispatcher series are flexibly staffed; positions at the Public Safety Dispatcher II level are typically filled by advancement from the Public Safety Dispatcher I level; progression to the Public Safety Dispatcher II level is dependent on (i) management affirmation that the position is performing the full range of duties assigned to the classification; (ii) satisfactory work performance; (iii) the incumbent meeting the minimum qualifications for the classification including any licenses and certifications; and (iv) management approval for progression to the Public Safety Dispatcher II level.
