RIVERSIDE – On February 6, 2024, 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, the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) and its affiliate association, CHP-PSDA. He presented the dispatchers with information about the advantages and protections that joining the union affords.
CHP-PSDA and the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) welcomes to membership:
“These public safety professionals training to become CHP dispatchers deserve our thanks as they embark upon their first responder-careers. They have a major role in public safety and emergency response,” said CSLEA President Alan Barcelona. “Their jobs can 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!”
The dispatchers will be working in communication centers located in Rancho Cordova, San Diego and Vallejo.
