Fremont Police Department names Dispatcher of the Year
Submitted By Fremont PD
Each year, the second week of April is dedicated to all those who serve as public safety dispatchers. The recognition began in the early 1980's and was nationally recognized by the U.S. Congress in 1991. The purpose is to honor all those who serve as the first point of contact for the community and who provide operational support which help safeguard public safety members in the field.
During National Telecommunications Week the Fremont Police Dispatcher's select a "Dispatcher of the Year". This year, Dee Schartzinger has been chosen to receive this honor. Dee has been with the Fremont Police Department since 1991. She is a two time recipient of this award; she also received this honor in 2003. Dee will be honored, along with all the dispatchers of Alameda County on Saturday April 20th in Oakland at Alameda County's Public Safety Recognition Banquet.
We'd like to congratulate Dee, and thank all of our dispatchers for the incredible work they do on a daily basis.
