The Critical Incident Dispatch Team is the only VSP team made up of civilian personnel. The team is staffed by dispatchers from our two emergency communication centers. When needed for emergency or pre-planned incidents, the team staffs and operates a State Police Mobile Command Post.
A Mobile Command Post provides on-scene communications as well as administrative support from the team during on-going incidents. The command posts have been used for planned events such as concerts or directed enforcement details, as well as for evolving emergency incidents such as homicides or search & rescue calls.
Requests for the Critical Incident Dispatch Team, or the Mobile Command Post can be made through the appropriate VSP Station.
