In 2016 Misty was chosen to be part of the Department of Health Statewide Curriculum Review Committee. This committee was tasked with redesigning the training curriculum now used to certify Telecommunications Personnel throughout the State of Florida. All of our Public Safety Telecommunicators are certified through the Department of Health’s 911 Public Safety Telecommunicator Training Program which Misty currently oversees.
The Public Safety Telecommunications Center is staffed with dedicated personnel who work to serve the needs of our citizens and officers. Our center is fully operational 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Responsibilities of our Public Safety Telecommunicators include answering and dispatching calls for service to our officers.
Public Safety Telecommunications houses the National Crime Information Center/Florida Crime Information Center (NCIC/FCIC) computer terminals. These terminals link every criminal justice agency in the Nation and Canada and allows important information to be shared.
