Very Productive work environment
Police Radio Dispatcher (Current Employee) – 201 Poplar, Memphis, TN – August 19, 2016
Beginning the day can be very busy with back to back calls for police service. It is a lot to learn, from knowing the city streets and interstates to mapping; we have to know phone numbers and education the public on various laws, ordinance and getting them to understand and try to stay calm in a serious situation. Helping the citizens is a rewarding job,because once you have done all you know and train to do, the citizens walk away educated and informed and hopefully be able to deal with other situations. Working with a bunch of loving, compassionate,kind, understanding and funny group of people helps make your run a little smoother. Maybe one of the hardest part of the job is receiving calls about children(infants, small or older) and you seem so helpless and learning to separate that incident and not to take the stress of it home..
