The Shawnee Communication Center has 12 full time dispatchers. There are four assigned to each of the three shifts allowing for various 2 day weekends. Some dispatchers have Friday and Saturday off while others may have Tuesday and Wednesday off. This is all due to the fact that this is a public safety operation and must be maned 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Dispatching is a proud profession and the Shawnee Police Department Dispatchers take their job very seriously.
