Hey, that’s us! That’s me, up there in the back row on the left, in glasses. On Monday, Nov. 7, 2016, we had an “all hands on deck” staff meeting. Dispatch, along with Records, IT, and the Business office staff were on hand for a yearly confab with Tulare County Sheriff Mike Boudreaux. We spent an informative hour with the Sheriff, as he brought us up to speed on the many projects in the works at the department. He also took some questions, and we didn’t hold back. It was a good meeting, with everyone looking forward to the future and the plans for the next few years.
These are the folks that handle 9-1-1 and non-emergency calls into our dispatch center. We handle calls for the Sheriff’s Office, Farmersville, Exeter, Woodlake, and Lindsay Police Departments. From missing children to shootings, this is the group that takes it all in stride, and gets help going.
It’s a great group of people, and I’ve enjoyed the 22 years I’ve been there. I’m going to be there for a while yet, and I don’t know of any other place I’d rather work. Well, like I’ve said before, NASA, but they don’t seem the least bit interested. Alas.
