The City of Folsom Police Department enjoys a highly supportive community, low crime, and a dedicated, tight-knit group of co-workers, police officers, and management. Folsom is filled with beautiful parks and trails; located 20 miles east of Sacramento, about 1.5 hour drive to Lake Tahoe, and is rated the #1 place to raise a family in California. If you possess a current and valid P.O.S.T. Dispatch Certificate, this may be the ideal job opportunity for you.
This position is posted until filled and may close at any time.

Dispatcher IIs may oversee, monitor, and/or direct the work of lower level personnel.
The Dispatcher II is the experienced/journey level class, fully competent to independently perform the full range of duties. This class is distinguished from those in the lower classification of Dispatcher I by the relative independence with which they perform their duties of applying specific references, procedures, sequences, and alternatives to different work situations, referring non-procedural questions to the supervisor, and the possibility of being assigned as a Communications Training Officer.
Posted salary for this position includes 7.5% educational/certification pay for your required P.O.S.T. Dispatch Certificate, as well as 6% holiday in-lieu pay for shift work. Additional college units may increase your educational/certification pay to a total maximum of 10%.
