The Communication Centers of the Florida Highway Patrol are staffed by approximately 260 men and women performing many of the functions necessary to allow the Florida Highway Patrol and its fellow law enforcement agencies to meet their mandated functions. Their duties include telephone contact with the public and other law enforcement agencies, for both emergency and non-emergency situations; dispatching emergency and non-emergency calls for service; performing computer inquiries for wanted persons, vehicles, registration, driver license, et cetera; and many other important tasks. The job is not easy; however, someone must do it.
The Florida Highway Patrol has ten troops with communication centers. The Miami and Orlando centers are "joint dispatch" operations serving the Florida Department of Law Enforcment, Department of Transportation's Motor Carrier Compliance, the Florida Highway Patrol, and other agencies.
