10-1 is just that , no ifs ands or buts

Don't know what else to say but there is no excuse for not doing your job. Calltakers take the calls one at a time, get as much info as possible, if they dont tell you, ask! Don't just tell the dispatcher they are calling again or "dupe". Go that extra mile and answer every question a po on the street would like to know. Dispatchers, your number one priority should be officer safety. Your job is to dispatch jobs, order that tow, run that name or plate, yes even if they have 4. Bottom line, this is your job, just do it and do it good.

No Furlo Day for Us

On this day when most of the city is sleeping, let us be grateful that we were able to come to work and actually get paid for it.

To bag or not to bag

So that is the latest dilemma , no biggie. If you bag can't fit in the drawer, don't bring it. That sounds easy right?

To the entire Chicago Police Department,
Although we are not out there with you sharing the everyday chase, traffic pursuit, burglar alarm, intoxicated man or woman, please know that I hope I speak for most of my co workers when I say your safety is our number one priority. To be the voice on the other end when a fellow police officer is shot, hurt or injured cannot even be described, until you have felt it. To hear all of what is going on yet not be able to physically help has got to be one of the most hardest things to go through as a dispatcher. But in the end we are all here for one reason and one reason only. Our job is to make sure that you come home to your loved ones. That alone is what brings me gratification on this job, to know I helped a police officer do his job by going that extra mile. In closing although we may never ever feel what you feel, believe me when I say our hearts at this time are just as heavy as yours. God Bless Alex!

Change is coming

Bosses had a meeting, lots said. Most of it is what everyone should be doing already ie, come to work on time, wear a nice looking proper uniform, no eating, take the calls, get the jobs out. That all sounds easy right?
Swap program? That actually sounds like a good idea. I think this all might be good, any one agree?
