Training
   
The Covington-Newton County 911 Center beleives that well trained dispatchers are the foundation on which great service is built. All of our dispatchers go through an extensive in house training program taught by our in-house Training Academy before they ever even enter the radio room to work. Also, all of our dispatchers are required to attend the Police Officers Standards and Training Counsel (POST) Basic Communications course at the Georgia Law Enforcement Training Center within 6 months of their employment with us. Additionally, all 911 center employees must attend a minimum of 20 hours of annual training each year. Overall most of our dispatchers far exceed the minimum required annual training hours.
