Two consolidated emergency communication centers provide dispatch services for the Vermont State Police, as well as several other state and local agencies, including Vermont Fish and Wildlife and the Department of Motor Vehicles. Both centers are also Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) where the majority of Vermont's 911 calls are answered. Both centers are staffed and operational 24 hours a day, every day of the year.
The Williston communication center, co-located in the Williston VSP Barracks, provides dispatch service for the five field stations in A Troop. The center also supports dozens of municipal police, fire and rescue agencies.
The two centers are both managed by a civilian administrator and are overseen by a State Police Captain.
Being an Emergency Communication Dispatcher (ECD) is a rewarding and fulfilling career. We are responsible for the safety of law enforcement personnel, other first responders, and the citizens and visitors of the State of Vermont. Employment opportunities exist at both centers. Please contact Emergency Communications Training Coordinator Michelle Hunt, or the respective PSAP Administrator for details on current openings.
