The Grapevine Police Department says it's in need of more 911 call operators.
The department announced a new $1200 hiring bonus for new emergency dispatchers Friday as police officers and firefighters are voluntarily serving in the 911 call operator role.
Current full-time emergency dispatchers are also being issued a $2400 bonus "with the support of city leaders," the department said.
According to the job description, pay for telecommunicators starts at $19.67 an hour and reaches up to $27.54 an hour.
$600 of the bonus for new hires is dependent on passing evaluations in an initial probationary period and as well as a 1-year-period.
Grapevine police said people "who can multi-task, specifically listen over the phone while typing and sending out information" are encouraged to apply for the position.
