Public Safety Hiring Event

Public Safety Communications

The Public Safety Communications Division along with the Longview Police Department and Longview Fire Department are holding a joint hiring event at the Longview Convention Complex from 10 a.m. – 7 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 16.

Representatives from the departments and human resources will be on hand to meet and conduct preliminary interviews with applicants. Immediate hiring needs include vacancies in the city’s critical Public Safety Communications division.

“Our 911 dispatch operators are often the first point of communication between residents and Longview public safety operations,” said Matt Ainsworth, public safety communications manager. “Dispatchers provide coordination and support for police, fire, and EMS operations.  Applicants don’t need prior 911 dispatch experience to apply, and if hired, they will receive paid, on-the-job training.”
