She's a really good dispatcher. On zone 8 a lot. Always did think she handles herself super professionally.
The dispatcher did a great job, the officers did a great job, but the bosses were a bunch of morons. Nobody took control and every unit ending in double zero wanted to come up with a unilateral, uncoordinated plan while taking over the air just so they could feel important.
Yup... That's our beloved Spatchers!! Thanks for all you do for us!!
Some of our dispatchers are fairly useless and some of them are professionals. This is one of the professionals, she handled this situation with skill and poise. Well done!
Dispatcher deserves to be put in for an award
Outstanding dispatcher. Zone Six kicks ASS!
People love to be heard... So stupid. Glad it all worked out, but really, do you have to come up on air to say you're going to a 10-1, that you're checking the tact office for ballistic shields, or that you're requesting the helicopter?Zone 6 dispatchers... Some of the best I've heard in my twenty plus years on. Are Karen, Ron, Fran and Annie still working? Whomever this dispatcher is - I'll buy her a beer. Great job.
Dispatcher deserves to be put in for an awardBoth spatchers on zone 6 deserve an accommodation!
She is very good Jamie wherever u r u were the best.
100% agree that dispatchers should have some award system. The only person who seemed to be in control of the scene was the dispatcher, and maybe the officer in the vestibule with the wounded.
Big ole Thank You OEMC
Holy shit that was intense. Great job by the dispatcher, that had to be super stressful. She defiantly handled herself well.
TS and KM are our best dispatchers on zone 6! Love you guys!
Impressive , most impressive, but your not a Jedi yet ....just kidding but an excellent job , well done
God forbid if this ever happens on zone 12 first watch. Can't understand her dispatching simple jobs, don't even want to imagine something like this. The dispatcher who handled this was top notch and shoukd be recognized. They're our life line and a big thank you to her
non -copper here, that was amazing to listen to, dispatcher was great and Thanks to all those on the ground for protecting us citizens from the animals out there. my adrenaline is still racing. I can only imagine racing to a scene like that
Nothing helps a chaotic situation more than a good dispatcher. She was at the top of her game. Great job ma'am!
She kicked ass. Totally kept the scene organized and informed
Great job by the dispatcher and the officers that were inside with the Capt.....
As a citizen she does a tremendous job, and was even better under pressure !! If you could get that from the bosses..
She always does an outstanding job
Bosses were ducking clueless know one new what to do! Un fucking believable
In years gone by there were some fantastic police dispatchers working the old CC room down at 1121 S State. Zone 3 radio, the real police, Wally and Billy. Scanner clubs revered those guys. They would play tapes of their dispatching hot calls and shootings etc. Wally was the last police officer in the City still getting D2 pay for the old title code for Police Dispatcher. He left only when the new 911 center opened and they eliminated his job and he bid to 019 on super seniority. They called their shift the Wally and Billy Show. Wally had a great disatching voice, calm, professional, you knew you were talking to a police officer. In a shooting once when all hell was breaking loose and the radio was a mess of people screaming Wally took charge, had everyone quiet down and took a roll call. Partly to determine who was where on the scene and mostly to calm everyone down and restore order.This dispatcher in 007 was also very good, she kept her head and kept order in a dangerous situation. Remember these times, way too fast you will be turning that star and ID in on retirement day and you will find it hard to believe it all is over. Stay safe.
She was AWESOME!!!!!
Grace Under Pressure...........
Listened to it real time she had all the bases covered except for Bossholes...
Always amazed how while in the most difficult situations you have that radio going non stop and are able to concentrate on whatever shit situation you are in, yet still comprehending all the talk being orchestrated by the dispatcher.Great dispatchers are the most underrated part of the job. But never ever under appreciated.Thanks to all the dedicated ones out there now and the retirees who might be reading this.Anybody remember Stan on zone 10?
Excellent work...When the awards come out for this incident she should not be forgotten. (Hint Gary) Then she should train other dispatchers.
Wally J was a great guy.
SCC,We need to learn from this incident. As a former Marine and a LEO for over a decade, great job by officers with wounded captain. However,it took too long to evacuate the wounded officer. A detailed analysis will uncover strengths and weaknesses.Training is key but too many coppers do not go to the range once a month and the dept does not budget for bi annual training until something happens.
Great job by the dispatcher. She should commended in front of the City Council. She should get a life saving award!!! She basically ran the scene. Thank you to all of you at OMEC for the great works all of do. She should also get a FOP award.
You guys really need to listen to how to take command and control of a major incident. You sounded like a bunch of kids that had not a clue of what to do. I listen to your regular radio traffic on occasion and you sound like a bunch of clowns. Try to be proffesional for a whole shift...Try it...
