RIVERSIDE – There is so much to learn when training to become a California Highway Patrol Public Safety Dispatcher, that sometimes it is nice to have a couple of veteran dispatchers stop by to share experiences and offer support.
“That’s our goal as union representatives, to bring some caring support to their time at the academy and to discuss the benefits of becoming part of our union family,” said CHP-Public Safety Dispatchers Association (CHP-PSDA) Southern Division Representative Alana Haddock. “We have a great support system and no one working in public safety should be without access to a union attorney and a Legal Defense Fund, which our union provides.”
With the assistance of CHP-PSDA Inland Division Representative Sakeena Freeny, Haddock welcomed two new union members at the Ben Clark Training Academy in Riverside. Rylee Forkin from the San Luis Obispo Communications Center and Cameron Morris from the Los Angeles Communications Center.
CSLEA and CHP-PSDA thank them for embarking upon a career in public safety and stand ready to assist them.
