Lewisville, TX is considering new options for addressing emergency dispatcher vacancies

Lewisville, TX addressing emergency dispatcher vacancies

Ideation

The City of Lewisville is looking for new ways to fill emergency 911 dispatcher positions to address a large number of vacancies and high turnover rates. One option being considered is a step pay plan which includes 5% salary increases annually over seven years. Another potential option is a lateral transfer program which would allow dispatchers from other cities to relocate to Lewisville while keeping their previous rate of pay and skipping academy training.
