SAN DIEGO -On August 26, 2022, the CHP-Public Safety Dispatchers Association (CHP-PSDA) Board of Directors and legal representatives from the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) expressed their sincere gratitude and appreciation to DeVon Young for his long and dedicated commitment and service to the union and its members.
“DeVon worked as a driving force for CHP public safety dispatchers and the union,” said CHP-PSDA President and CSLEA Senior Vice President Tina Brazil. “He is passionate about our profession, the first responder work that we do and about supporting our union that works to improve our salaries, benefits and working conditions. He has made remarkable contributions to our efforts and we can’t say thank you enough.”
CHP-PSDA presented Young with a plaque to commemorate his work and reflect CHP-PSDA’s appreciation of his years of effort. Young left his 24 years of employment at CHP, to become the Greater Los Angeles Ventura County Information Officer II for California Department of Veteran Affairs. He spent his entire career with CHP at the Los Angeles Communications Center (LACC).
During his tenure at CHP, DeVon achieved his Master’s Degree, all the while assisting with union business and duties.
Young will continue to work as a CHP-PSDA consultant, as his knowledge about CHP issues and how they impact dispatchers is a valuable asset.
