Dispatch & Records
The Dispatch Center is made up of 8 full-time dispatchers who answer 911 calls day and night.
The dispatcher's job is made up of many different tasks, and they are required to work with numerous agencies. Dispatchers are tasked with many job skills from receiving initial calls, entering information on the computer, prioritizing calls, dispatching proper response personnel, giving directions, and tracking calls from start to end. Dispatchers not only communicate with Sheriff’s Office personnel but also dispatch for the Fire Departments, EMS, Rescue, DNR, and ambulances responding to the county. Dispatchers also answer phone calls that come to the Sheriff’s Office. Dispatchers must be able to multi-task and make split second life saving decisions.
Dispatch is operated 24 hours a day, year round.
Dispatch works out of the Twiggs County Sheriff’s Office located at 37 North Ash Street, Jeffersonville, GA.
