Mar­i­on Police Dis­patch­ers are in the Employ­ee Spot­light for all they do for the cit­i­zens of Mar­i­on.

These peo­ple are the first link,” said MPD Chief Angela Haley. Dis­patch­ers are an extreme­ly impor­tant mem­ber of the first respon­der fam­i­ly. They are the life­line for cit­i­zens and first respon­ders alike. Their abil­i­ty to stay calm and focused ensures that crit­i­cal infor­ma­tion is passed from our cit­i­zen callers to the emer­gency respon­ders com­ing to assist in times of cri­sis. I have been for­tu­nate in my time as a Police Offi­cer to work with some of the best in the busi­ness. I am grate­ful for the ser­vice and friend­ship they have pro­vid­ed over the years.”

Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Man­ag­er / IDACS Coor­di­na­tor, Phyl­lis Kauff­man, is the lead dis­patch­er for MPD. Every day is dif­fer­ent because each call is dif­fer­ent. They are all doing a great job, and remain flex­i­ble to get help out to the peo­ple. We are a real­ly good team. We work very hard to best of our abil­i­ty every day amidst high-stress situations.”

The team is work­ing to con­sol­i­date with the coun­ty for cen­tral­ized dis­patch planned for June.
