The Police Communications office is the nerve center and lifeline of the UT Arlington Police Department. Each police communications operator plays a vital role in the overall mission of the department by facilitating emergency and non-emergency response to the UT Arlington Community.
Police Communications operates 24 hours a day and acts as a primary point of contact or referral resource for:
- EMS and fire services
- Request for safety escorts
- Elevator entrapments
- Motorist assists
- Response to Emergency Call Boxes (Code Blue Locations)
The Police Communication Center is staffed by full-time licensed communications operators. All police communication operators receive extensive training to include a 15 week field training program. Communication operators are licensed through the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE).
