    At any given time, Hamline Public Safety employs a number of students as Dispatchers or Student Officers. Student Workers are heavily relied upon for the day to day operation of the department, and are frequently called up to work various shifts, including overnights, weekends, and holidays/breaks.

    • Answering phone calls (emergency and non-emergency)
    • Communicating with members of the department via radio
    • Printing Hamline ID’s
    • Other administrative duties as needed

    Student Officer General Duties:
