WEST SACRAMENTO - Seven new California Highway Patrol public safety dispatchers took a short break from their training at the CHP Academy in West Sacramento June 10, 2017, to meet the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) and its affiliate, CHP-Public Safety Dispatchers Association (CHP-PSDA).
“CHP-PSDA Vice President Victor Tovar, and our CSLEA Member Services Representatives George Pina and Marco Castro met with the new dispatchers to introduce themselves, and to explain our benefits and services,” said CSLEA President Alan Barcelona. “There is so much information to wade through as a new state employee, and the training involved with becoming a CHP dispatcher can be lengthy and intense. We like to show up personally. Victor talks about how CSLEA and CHP-PSDA have supported him in his career as a CHP dispatcher and our reps go over information like the legal defense fund, life insurance, our discount program, and scholarship opportunities.”
CSLEA and CHP-PSDA would like to welcome new members and dispatchers-in-training: Brandi Javine, Rebecca Alvarez, Timothy Gutshall, Elizabeth Paez, Steve Mallory, Tatum Brown, Margaret Ochoa.
