SCOTTSDALE, AZ (3TV/CBS5) -- Scottsdale police say one of its dispatchers has tested positive for the coronavirus. The police department confirmed the diagnosis Tuesday evening.
As part of the department's COVID-19 response plan, the communications unit is being moved to a secondary location within the department. Police say the dispatch center will then receive a “deep-cleaning.”
It's National Public Safety Telecommunications week, celebrating dispatchers and 911 operators who are now working harder than ever amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Dispatch operations will then return to the original location after the cleaning has taken place.
Police assure the public that this will not cause any disruption of services.
