Dispatch/Emergency Communications

  • Phone: (360) 867-6832
  • Hours: 24 hours/day

Dispatch/Emergency Communications receive all calls that come into the campus and route them to the proper office.
One of their most important functions is the taking of emergency phone calls like 911.
They're trained similarly to other 911 dispatchers which means they are the main communication link both to and from officers in the field.

Public Safety Assistants

Public Safety Assistants/CrimeWatch (PSA/CW) are a group of students who patrol the campus and act as an extra set of eyes and ears for campus police. They help protect vehicles from vandalism and thefts, dorm residences from burglars and thieves, provide safety escorts and assist the department with non-law enforcement duties.

CrimeWatch students are employed by the Evergreen Campus Police as Public Safety Assistants (PSA's).  We consider the PSA's as an important part of our department and recognize the opportunity to engage in meaningful interaction with our student body in a positive manner.

For more information contact Officer Lana Brewster at (360) 867-5155. 

If you are interested in applying for a PSA position please fill out an application (Word) and confidentiality form (PDF).
