WEST SACRAMENTO - Five California Highway Patrol (CHP) Dispatchers training at the CHP Academy in West Sacramento met with CHP-Public Safety Dispatchers Association (CHP-PSDA) President Tina Brazil on July 16, 2018.
“It was a great opportunity to meet five of our newest dispatchers and welcome them to CHP-PSDA and the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA),” said Brazil. “Training can be overwhelming, so I like to drop in and say hello, ask how things are going and let them know that they are not alone in this. This is a complicated public safety job that requires a great deal of knowledge, common sense, a coolness under pressure.”
Brazil conducted a New Employee Orientation along with CSLEA representatives George Pina and Marco Castro. The orientation explains the benefits and services of CSLEA and CHP-PSDA and puts some faces to names for the dispatchers.
“We welcome them to membership, to the association and to the CHP,” said Brazil. “I feel good knowing our dispatchers have confidence in our services to help them when they need it.”
