The Lebanon Police Department’s Communications Office is a function of the Administrative Services Division. It is responsible for the dispatching of both routine and emergency calls to police, fire, animal control, and public works. The Communications Office Dispatchers handle an average of 5,700 calls each month. They are also responsible for the entry and maintenance of NCIC records such as missing persons, wanted persons, stolen vehicles, weapons, license plates, and other items containing an identification number. NCIC is a nationwide, computerized information system established as a service to all criminal justice agencies – local, state, and federal. Each Dispatcher must be certified and proficient in the use of this system. Every three years, the Communications Office receives an audit from the TBI LESU Division. The audit ensures that the department maintains compliance with all federal and state police policies relating to dispatch. The Communications Office employs both full time and part time employees.
In an emergency, dial 911, for all other calls, dial 615-444-2323, press #1 for Dispatch.
