RIVERSIDE - Six California Highway Patrol (CHP) public safety dispatchers and operators training at the Ben Clark Training Center in Riverside had the opportunity to meet with representatives from the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) and CHP-Public Safety Dispatchers Association. (CHP-PSDA) on August 20, 2019.
The dispatchers and operators are on their way to becoming public safety professionals who will answer 911 calls and communicate with officers in the field.
“It takes a special type of person to learn all that it takes to be a public safety dispatcher,” said CSLEA President Alan Barcelona. “These public safety professionals are quick thinkers who remain calm even when the world they are hearing in their earpiece is falling apart. We welcome our six newest members and thank them for seeing the value in union membership.”
CHP-PSDA Secretary-Treasurer Steve Fulton and CSLEA Counsel Stacy Olsen met with the group-in-training to introduce them to the benefits and services CSLEA and CHP-PSDA offer.
