The Upper Saddle River Police Department Communications Center is the nerve center for all radio, telephone, teletype and computer communications. The communications officers are the vital link between citizens and all public safety services of the Borough.  All emergency communications for the Borough’s Police Department, Fire Department and Ambulance Corps are handled from this location. Communications, also known as dispatch, is staffed by 3 full time civilians and several part time civilians who work the “desk” 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The duties of our communications officers cover a wide array of daily tasks. Besides handling all radio communications and answering all emergency and non-emergency phone calls into the police department, the communications officers are responsible to research and retrieve information to assist officers on calls and detectives conducting investigations. In order to handle this task each communications officer must go through training at the Bergen County Police Academy.
