Communication time length between 911 and dispatcher?
When a 911 operator gets a call, how long does it take the operator to get in touch with the dispatcher for police, paramedics, etc.?

911 IS the dispatcher.

Most cities have one dedicared center. And the 911 operator dispatches the police also. In other cities it is seconds before they receive the call.

In the 911 centers I visited or learned about, the person taking the call is also the person doing the dispatching.
