How did you get your start doing police dispatcher work, and what career moves did you make to get to your current position?

Do you need a particular educational background?

I was a volunter firefighter and EMT when I was hired as a dispatcher. Not all new hires have that kind of experience. Customer service, phone skills, listening skills are important. Stable job history, good credit (they pull credit reports) and no felony arrests.
