Again from "crime scene investigation"

1. one policeman asks another to take notes for him because he is going to be sick and she tells him:

"I got it, go get some fresh air. I heard it on the scanner. A quadruple. Figured you'd might need a hand.

my question: what does she means by qudruple, is it the voice intensified four times, on the scanner?

2. the chief tells his policewoman "Call dispatch, you tell my entire graveyard shift that I want them here ASAP, no exceptions."

I wanted to know the meaning of "call dispatch". does it mean to announce immediatly, maybe on the scanner?

Thank you very much beforehand!
