u “It really is beneficial to have one centralized dispatch. It is better for officer safety!”
u “Consolidation sucks! I know, I was there. When we (original county) took all ya’ll on, it was terrible pressure. We had to wait for you (Alex and Elwood) to get an understanding of our radios, computer programs and rules. Personally, even though I am no longer there, I would worry about dispatchers. What will happen to their benefits and pay?”
THB: Consolidation of every county agency in one dispatch makes sense. It will allow for better communications and, in an emergency, nothing is more important than getting the word out quickly to responders.
