911 Dispatcher

Everyday is different whether it’s good or bad. I get to help many people on a daily basis and it’s rewarding knowing I’m helping my community. My officers and deputies are important, as well as Fire and First responders. It is my job to make sure their day goes as well as possible and that they go home safe at the end of their shifts or calls.
