Dispatch Center

Along with sworn officers available 24/7, the University of Montana also has a full dispatch center.  Dispatchers are fully certified and trained by the Montana Law Enforcement Academy.  All of the staff working in the front office are certified dispatchers

The UM Dispatchers are the people that are next to the phone in case there is an emergency.  They are making sure campus is running smoothly while most of us at home with our family or asleep in our beds.  Not only do they work with the police officers but they also monitor building security and make the necessary calls when things go wrong.  Whether it is a broken pipe that is causing flooding above your office or a burglary alarm, UM Dispatchers watch over the university 24/7.  They are also the first voice you hear if you need help.
