Dispatch

The Franklin Borough Police Department is not staffed by any police dispatchers. The Franklin Police Officers are dispatched by the Sparta Police Dispatch Center who have several full time dispatchers and numerous per diem dispatchers who answer your call for help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

When you call the Police Department, one of our dispatchers will most likely answer the phone. Depending on the emergency you are reporting, they will dispatch the police, fire, and/or ambulance. In addition to taking calls from the public, our dispatchers are responsible for assisting the police officers in Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) look ups and communicating to other agencies during large scale incidents.
