Dispatchers triage the calls that come in and allocate the necessary resources to provide assistance to the public. They are responsible for answering the radio and communicating with officers on their calls for service. The Newport Police Department has 9 full time dispatchers.
The Newport Police Department Training Office is one of the support functions of the agency.
