The Seabrook Police Department’s telecommunications division is a year-round 24-hour operations center. Our telecommunicators work tirelessly to receive calls from citizens and dispatch police resources promptly. The telecommunications division is staffed by eight operators who work various shifts, all under the command of the police department’s administrative lieutenant. In addition to police services, our telecommunications division also dispatches for the Seabrook Volunteer Fire Department.

Never Prank Call 9-1-1
It is a prank to call 9-1-1 as a joke or to call and hang up. If 9-1-1 call takers are busy with prank callers, a real emergency call may be neglected or not properly answered. Prank calling 9-1-1 is against the law in the State of Texas.
