The Technology Behind: 911 Police Communications and Dispatch



+ Add a Comment


I wonder how thinkpads compare - they use them in space you know.



First off, I want to say this provides a great deal of information about PSAP's but I feel like this is a bit one sided to the dispathers point of view. I wish this article had talked more about the technology that the Police officers/EMT's/Firefighters use when reciving a call from dispatch. If you want to learn more about what happens on the responder side I would recomend getting a EMT textbook which will run you around 80$'s or join your local emergency services station as a voulenter. 



Interesting layman's run-down of PSAP technology.

Thanks for posting it! 

(I'm a supervisor at an American PSAP.)
