RIVERSIDE - Training to become a California Highway Patrol (CHP) dispatcher can be a difficult process and that’s why representatives from the CHP-Public Safety Dispatchers Association and the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) made a point to visit with dispatchers training in Riverside on January 30, 2018.
“There is an incredible amount to learn and it can sometimes be overwhelming and stressful,” said CSLEA President Alan Barcelona. “Our representatives recognize that and visit with the dispatchers during training to lend their support and introduce our benefits and services to them.”
CHP dispatchers are first responders who answer a bulk of the 911 calls made from cellphones in the state. In addition, they are in communications with officers in the field.
Conducting the new employee orientation was Steve Fulton, Secretary and Treasurer for CHP-PSDA and Public Safety Dispatcher, Indio Dispatch and well as CSLEA Member Services Representative Shelley Bishop.
