17. It depends on the jurisdiction.

In big city areas, they're more likely to be actual officers, but in most places the dispatchers are civilian employees of the police department. However, refusal to follow their directions, in a manner that hampers the police response, is in some places a misdemeanor on the grounds of interfering with emergency services, similar to if you were making crank calls to 911.
