RCMP 911 Dispatcher

Really interested in switching over from an unrelated Peace Officer role and into the RCMP as a civilian dispatcher (also known as a telecommunications operator).

I've heard they are chronically short staffed all over Canada, however I live in the one province that has the lowest vacancy rate by far. As a result, they rarely hire. Bummer.

Regardless, I'm really interested in hearing from anyone with experience in this role. Do you like your job? Did you take a polygraph to get hired? Will technology render this job obsolete in the next 30 years?

Any insight you can give me would be greatly appreciated!
