RIVERSIDE – On February 2, 2021, Steve Fulton, Secretary-Treasurer of the CHP Public Safety Dispatchers Association (CHP-PSDA) conducted a new employee orientation for dispatchers training at the Ben Clark Training Center in Riverside.
Fulton introduced the new dispatchers to their union and presented them with information about the advantages and protections that joining the union affords.
“Like me, most of the new dispatchers I met today, feel a calling to be a First Responder. I am happy to welcome these new Dispatchers into our ranks,” said Fulton.
CHP-PSDA and the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) welcomes to membership:
• Marissa Caldera-Bash
• Douglas McClements
• Daylan Medrano and
• Eme Iturralde
“These public safety professionals training to become CHP dispatchers deserve our thanks as they embark upon a career that has a major role in public safety and emergency response,” said CSLEA President Alan Barcelona. “Their jobs at times will be extremely stressful, but at the same time very rewarding. I want each of them to know how accessible their union representatives and leaders are to them and to be aware of the work we do year-round to improve and maintain their salaries, benefits and workplace conditions and environment. Welcome to CSLEA and CHP-PSDA!”
