Residents who want to learn how the Long Beach Police Department (LBPD) dispatches 9-1-1 calls are invited to a free workshop Tuesday, June 15, from 5pm to 6:30pm at the Mark Twain Neighborhood Library Community Room, 1401 E. Anaheim St.
Rich Funke from the City of Long Beach 9-1-1 Communication Center will give a presentation on the communication system procedures, including: how the LBPD prioritizes and dispatches 9-1-1 calls; how to communicate with dispatchers in order to have an effective police response; and why dispatchers ask the questions they do. The meeting is sponsored by Anaheim Street Community Police Center and MacArthur Park/Whittier School Neighborhood Improvement Strategy Area.
This free workshop will be presented in English with Spanish and Khmer translation. Light refreshments will be provided, and free parking is available in the library parking lot.
