The Plainfield Police Department utilizes three (3) full-time dispatchers that normally work Monday – Friday. Part-time dispatchers are used to fill the weekends and major holidays. Our dispatchers have multiple duties to include clerical work, answer both emergency and non-emergency calls, and send police officers to a scene. Dispatchers are often the first point of contact for people in need of help. Our dispatchers are highly trained to handle all types of calls. They are truly an officer’s lifeline.
Our Administrative Office Assistant performs a variety of tasks for the Chief of Police, Captain, and Police Department as an entirety. She has administrative skills and specializes in payroll, billing, and scheduling of all members. Freedom of Information requests are prepared by her on a daily basis. She works part-time normally Monday-Thursday.
