COMMUNICATIONS OFFICER

Duluth Police Department

The City of Duluth, Georgia (pop. 31,000) is accepting applications for the position of COMMUNICATIONS OFFICER in the Duluth Police Department.

Communications Officers are responsible for operating emergency and non-emergency police radio, telephone and computer communication systems. This is a complex, multi-tasking, and critical life-safety position—this means you must be able to talk on the phone, talk on the police radio system, and enter computer data all at the same time. Frequently this occurs under stressful conditions during emergency events where accurate and timely communication is critical to the safety of the public and the police officers.

The individual should possess office or clerical experience and must have a high school diploma or state-issued GED. Previous experience in emergency radio/telephone operations is desirable, but not required. Must have moderate keyboarding/computer skills and be able to work individually and in a team.

All applicants are subject to an extensive background investigation, including criminal history background, drug testing, vision/hearing/medical exam, psychological evaluation, and polygraph. Individuals must be able to obtain state certification as a Communications Officer within 6 months of employment, which involves the successful completion of a state-mandated two-week classroom training program off-site. Additionally, you must successful complete 11-16 weeks of supervised on-the-job training and demonstrate the skills necessary to perform the job. Currently, shifts are 12 hours long, starting at 6am and 6pm; with every other weekend having Friday-Sunday off.

Hiring pay range is: $19.10 - $21.10 per hour, ($39,728 - $43,888 annualized; Grade 19). Starting pay is based on qualifications including specific experience and foreign language skills.

Contact Major William Petty at wpetty@duluthpd.com or by phone at 678-512-3709 with any questions on job duties or hiring process.

Open until filled, may close at any time without notice.
