The Tempe Police Dispatchers serve as a link between our City of Tempe Residents & Visitors, and the Police Officers who serve the community. Our primary function is to answer 9-1-1 and non-emergency calls from the public, and communicate information, via police radio, to officers in the field.

We work a variety of shifts covering 24 hours a day / 7 days a week, including weekends and holidays.
