A Tactical Dispatch Team is comprised of highly skilled and trained 911 telecommunicators with experience in police, fire, and EMS dispatching. Tactical Dispatch Team members will participate in various training courses and in real-life staged scenarios. Tactical Dispatchers know what and when to document vital information and what data could later be needed in court (Tactical Dispatcher, n.d.). Any incident can turn from calm and simple to chaotic and complex. The Tactical Dispatch Team is a major support system for first responder personnel.
