Law Enforcement Class
Law Enforcement 2 classes have been studying since the beginning of the school year to be certified as 911 dispatchers. This 122 question exam challenges a student's ability to memorize certain rules that a dispatcher has to go by and be prepared for any kind of incident, whether it be a call about a disturbance in a neighborhood to homicide. Students can become a dispatcher at the age of 18 with a high school diploma and no college experience whatsoever. On average a dispatchers salary will be around 44,000 dollars. North Texas is recognized as being the best paying area in the state for 911 dispatchers.
Required skills needed for this career are being able to operate various computer and communication equipment which they train you to do. Good judgement and communication skills, this allows them to prioritize the importance of the call as well as being able to communicate clearly with police, fire and EMs and the caller. Another skill is being comfortable talking to people in various emotional states. It’s also required for dispatchers to be medically trained so they can help the caller while they wait for emergency services. Some advantages of becoming a dispatcher are there is a demand for jobs, especially for people who do well under pressure so there’s always job openings. It’s rewarding to know that you're helping people even if the situation is minimal . Lastly all you need is your high school diploma, unlike other jobs you’d need a college degree.
Mrs. Hedrick, Law Enforcement teacher, offers her students the opportunity to take this exam so they can have a real world job outside of high school and giving them the necessary skills needed for the job.
“I want to see my students be successful, and this training is one way to help them reach their goals,” Mrs. Hedrick said.
