Communications

Communications is included in the Public Safety Communications Service (PSCS), under the Law Enforcement Support Division (LESD). Currently, 27 Communications facilities, approximately 173 Communications Operators, 29 Communications Supervisors and 7 Communications Area Managers make up this service. It is guided by the State Communications Coordinator, the Deputy Administrator of the Public Safety Communications Service, the Deputy Assistant Director of the Public Safety Communications Service and the Assistant Director of the Law Enforcement Support Division. Communications works closely with the Wireless Communications (radio) personnel to provide DPS the latest, most effective communications, radio and mobile technologies available.

Communications facilities are strategically located throughout the state to provide maximum radio and telecommunications coverage. These facilities are staffed with some of the best and brightest communications personnel in the state of Texas. Occasionally there are vacancies in communications positions at those facilities that might interest you.
