Home Government Telecommunicator Position
The Glenview Public Safety Dispatch Center (GPSDC) currently dispatches for 14 communities and has two dispatch centers, in Glenview (South) and Highland Park (North). As the GPSDC continues to grow there will be opportunities for future employment. When full-time positions become available, internal part-time candidates are commonly provided the first opportunity to apply.
The GPSDC has grown over the past eight years, starting with the consolidation of the Village of Glenview’s police and fire dispatch centers. In 2009, the Village of Glenview established an agreement with the Village of Grayslake to provide dispatch services. In 2010, GPSDC started providing dispatch services for the Village of Hainesville. In 2012, the GPSDC expanded once again to provide dispatch services to the Villages of Niles and Morton Grove. In 2014, the GPSDC began dispatching for Lake Bluff, Lake Forest, Highland Park, and Highwood and established a second dispatch centerin the Highland Park Police Department, also known as GPSDC-N. This most recent service expansion brought an opportunity to provide redundant dispatch services, which allows all communities to be dispatched from either the GPSDC-N or GPSDC-S locations in an emergency or communications failure. In 2017, the Villages of Lindenhurst, Glencoe, Kenilworth, Northfield, and Winnetka were added to GPSDC. The two dispatch centers serve approximately 240,000 residents, answer approximately 300,000 calls and handle over 200,000 calls for service per year.
