Yonkers PD to host a "911 Virtual Ride Along" with dispatchers tonight

2 posts in this topic

Pretty neat idea!

Yonkers PD to host a "911 Virtual Ride Along" with our dispatchers tonight.

In recognition of National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week (April 13th – 17th), the Yonkers Police Department will be engaging in a “911 Virtual Ride Along” tonight from 3:00 p.m. to 11:00p.m. with our dispatchers at the Communications Division. Our residents can follow along on the Yonkers Police Department facebook page to view posts concerning dispatcher activity on actual 911 calls, dispatcher responsibilities, and photos taken from inside of the Communications Division.

Our YPD civilian dispatchers are commonly the first point of contact with the public and they provide the vital service of dispatching police, fire and medical resources to locations throughout our city. In 2014 they handled over 150,000 calls for service. The “911 Virtual Ride Along” will give the public an opportunity to see our dispatchers at their work stations and follow them in real time for a tour of service. The Yonkers Police Department facebook page can be located at https://www.facebook.com/YonkersPD

Any media outlets interested in covering tonight’s “911 Virtual Ride Along” should contact Detective Lieutenant Patrick McCormack at 914-377-6923.

Are they repeating this next year??? Don't even remember seeing it in the Journal News, probably because they only report on the Tappan Zee bridge construction and Rockland County in general. Not LOL.

Also, is the YPD transitioning into T Band frequencies?? Saw online that a $1.7 Million dollar radio system upgrade was approved by the Board of Purchasing in their online agenda from November 19th. Are the feds paying for that upgrade since they are mandating it???

Thanks Much
