The Florida State University Communications Center is located just beyond the main entrance of the Police Department in the William Tanner building located at 830 West Jefferson Street. The communication center is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The Department currently employs 11 full-time communication operators. All of our operators are State of Florida certified 911 Public Safety Telecommunicators and have received sixteen weeks of training prior to working alone and continuously receive updated training.
The communications center is responsible for a variety of emergency and non-emergency call taking. They have been trained to determine what type of response needs to be sent based on the caller.
