The Communications Center for the Hacienda La Puente Unified School District Police Department is staffed 5 days a week, Monday through Friday with 2 full-time highly-trained public safety dispatchers. The Communications Center manages communications for 17 elementary schools, 11 intermediate schools, 5 high schools and 8 other District facilities covering 11.5 densely populated square miles in the Hacienda La Puente Unified School District .
The Communications Center serves as the critical link between the School District and local and regional public safety emergency and non-emergency responders. Communications Center staff members are committed and trained to acquire and disperse pertinent information to help protect life, property, and the students and personnel of the Hacienda La Puente Unified School District. Dispatchers monitor and serve as the lead dispatch responsibility for crimes in progress, reported crimes, traffic flow, burglary and fire alarm activation and a wide range of non-emergency calls for assistance. Communications personnel work closely with Sheriff's Service Dispatchers from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department to maximize coordination and safety when responses involve personnel from both agencies.
