A MESSAGE FROM DISPATCH
Great things are happening in the Clarksville Police/Fire Dispatch Center.
The Communications Center can sometimes be a little mysterious. We are those voices in the radios. Dispatch is made up of 34 employees, 1 Dispatch Director, 1 Q&A/Training Coordinator, 3 Shift Supervisors, and 29 full-time dispatchers. These diverse groups of people and the E911 dispatchers operate the comm. center 24 hours a day, 365 days a year no matter what is going on outside of those walls. We are a highly trained group of professional Telecommunicators. Each dispatcher is Police, Fire, HazMat, APCO, NCIC, and NIMS certified within 6 months from the date of hire.
Here is some of our exciting news that has happened to date.
In any field, perfect attendance is rare, in a career like ours, it is especially. We are truly fortunate to have two employees that received the “2017 Perfect Attendance” award: Ronte Kincaid and Lynn Stuck. Ronte and Lynn were present regardless of reports of snow, ice, tornadoes, heavy rains, holidays, or weekends. They showed their dedication to their department, officers and firefighters. Their passion for a job well done (in a field that often goes unnoticed) is a major accomplishment.
This year we have the great honor to announce that Angela “Angee” Daniel has also been chosen as one of the 2018 APCO’s Annual presenters in Las Vegas, NV this August. Her presentation will speak about the issues organizations deal with in workplace bullying. The (A)ssociation of (P)ublic-Safety (C)ommunication (O)fficals is an international organization that receive many submissions to present at the annual conference and to have one of Clarksville’s dispatchers be chosen is truly awesome.
We just celebrated National Telecommunicator’s Week and we want to send out our heartfelt “THANK YOU” to all the agencies/individuals that stopped by and/or sent meals to the Clarksville Police & Fire and the Montgomery County E911 dispatchers. We truly appreciate you.
Our continued goal is to give our best to ensure that the citizens of Clarksville receive the best.
