Communications

Overview

As of November 2018 the dispatch center, previously housed at the police department, moved to the Mcculloch County Sheriff's Office. The new Central Dispatch can be reached at 325-597- 0639. County will send the appropriate agency to assist you.

While traditionally referred to as “Dispatchers”, many people do not know that Communications Officers actually receive a license from the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE), a qualification very similar to police officers.  This professional certification requires many hours of training and years of experience in order to obtain advanced licensing or certifications. 

The City of Brady Communication Team is operational 24 hours a day and is the “hub” of the department.  We are staffed by four Communications Officers. The team handles after-hours utility calls for the City of Brady along with fulfilling our ERCOT (Electric Reliability Council of Texas) responsibilities such as providing important information about the City of Brady electric grid and how it is used.

Although City of Brady Communications Team no longer handles 911 calls, they are there to assist callers or walk-ins with any follow-up cases already assigned to a particular officer or anyone requesting to speak with a City of Brady Police Officer.

The team also obtains information pertaining to open investigations through the NCIC(National Crime Information Center) and TCIC (Texas Crime Information Center) Systems and provides officers with miscellaneous information as driver’s license, vehicle registration, criminal history and wanted person status as requested by the officer in the field.
