    Today I am happy and feeling celebratory, as I have just been informed that I am to report for training in 2 weeks time to become a full time Communications Officer at my County Sherriff's Department. I've spent 2 years trying to land a job like this, bouncing from one bad job to another, then picking up random temp work and barely paying the bills for the last, oh, many months. This is a joyous occasion!

    The personal and professional rut I've been in for so long has affected me on many levels, and on a side note, I'd like to apologize to anyone and everyone on this board who has ever been offended by my occasionally indelicate way of phrasing things. I feel so much better now, that I'm going to try to turn over a new leaf.

    When I'm in my new job, I'll be dispatching police, ambulance, fire department, and utilities trucks to resolve emergency issues. This is going to be great, making a difference, helping my community, and getting paid for it. I haven't been this happy in a long time.

    'grats! I spend 3 years as a T/C in a 911\dispatch environment and loved the job. Nothing quite like it. Do as many ride alongs with both the officers and EMTs as you can. As trite as it sounds, it helps to learn something about the other side of the mic. And it'll get you a little extra respect from them, too. :)

    Nice! Now go out and hire two people, get a jaguar, two birds, a bat, a Tyrannosaurus Rex, a Stegosaurus, an ape, and a pterodactyl and you got yourself your own cassette force! :p

    Yeah, I'm liable to take the Soundwave thing a bit too far already. I'll probably put his tech spec up at my desk and I've already begun to obsess about finding his WFC generations figure. :D

    Hey buddy glad to have you as part of the family. Remember Dispatchers save seconds and seconds save lives.


    Remember you are the Police Officers life line to help, you are very much appreciated.
