Have you ever wondered when you call 9-1-1 who is answering the call? Have you ever wondered why the dispatcher asks you so many questions? Have you ever thought about becoming a police dispatcher? This is your chance to meet with one of our BC RCMP 9-1-1 police dispatchers and find out the important role they play in public safety.

The event is on Monday April 3, 2023 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at Serious Coffee located at 1209 Island Highway East. You’ll meet Jaclyn, recruiter with the Vancouver Island’s 9-1-1 Police Dispatch Centre, and can ask her questions about this vital role.

To request a time to meet Jaclyn, email her directly at: Please include your preferred time, your name, phone number and email address. There is no purchase of a coffee necessary to speak to a 9-1-1 RCMP police dispatcher.

Come and join me for a Coffee with a Dispatcher! says Jaclyn. I am excited to share why I love coming to work as a 9-1-1 police dispatcher and how rewarding it is to play a big role in keeping our community safe.

If a career helping people and meaningful work interests you, don’t miss this event!
