The Seabrook Police Department’s telecommunications department is a year-round 24-hour operations center. The telecommunications office is the nerve center of the Seabrook Police Department. Our dispatchers work relentlessly to receive calls from citizens and dispatch police resources in a timely manner. The telecommunications division is staffed by eight operators that 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 when someone calls 9-1-1 for a joke or calls 9-1-1 and hangs 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.
