Law Enforcement Dispatch

The leader in police communications training has taken law enforcement dispatch training to a whole new level.

An alarming number of police officers are injured or killed prior to the arrest phase. A properly trained emergency call taker can help protect these officers, as well as preserve evidence and assist victims.

PowerPhone’s Law Enforcement Dispatch (LED) program teaches operators to effectively handle emergency law enforcement calls by following a simple formula to gather and share the most important information fast and with accuracy. It’s an essential component of PowerPhone’s Total Response® system.
