Can you help me?

 I'm reading a legal mystery "An Innocent Client" by Scott Pratt.

"an old lady called into dispatch and reported that her cat found some kind of human body…"

What does "call into dispatch" mean here?

I guess that the lady called the police about the stuff her cat found.

Hi! Your guess is right. The lady called the police. "Dispatch" is the name given for the person who receives calls for the police and tells the officers where they need to go and what they need to do.


Hope that helps!
