December 2014 Dispatcher Training

Seven more of our personnel attended Public Safety Telecommunicator 1 training through APCO (The Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials).

APCO describes the benefit of the 54 hour course by stating, "The position of public safety telecommunicator involves more than answering the telephone, getting a location and sending response units to calls for service.  Public safety communications has evolved into a specialized and professional field of endeavor requiring the application of knowledge, attributes and skills not commonly found in other occupations."

The seven members of VUDPS that successfully completed the course and are now APCO certified are:
Peter Boychuck
Kenney Calcagni
Earvin Faust
Joseph Fisher
Kyle Fisher
Brian Rogers
Joseph Wilkins


Please continue to check back for new events happening in Public Safety!
