FRAMINGHAM, Mass.— Anne Camaro sat in front of three large computer screens at the Framingham Police Department's dispatch station. One screen automatically posted calls as they came in. Another was covered with maps of the town. The third listed on-duty officers. A microphone stood by her side, ready to be utilized in an emergency.

"It's the most stressful job in the department," said Lieutenant Paul Shastany, spokesman for the Framingham police. "This is key."
