MetroSafe taking step forward

May 25th, 2007 @ 2:40PM (17 years ago)

Is that money going to buy us some dispatchers that pay attention to the radio, update the officers, speak in clear english, and who don't make it a point to argue with the officers over the air??? There are quite a few good dispatchers and they know who they are but some of their fellow coworkers are giving them a bad name each night.

Are the police, fire and other medical responders going to suffer through little or no pay raises to compensate for this technology? It is my understanding that the firefighters and the police captains and lieutenants have been without contract for almost 2 years. I almost forgot, we need a 4 million dollar dog kennel for the stray animals in our community before those that protect us can get a cost of living raise.

"The entire project will cost over $71 million, with construction on the communication towers to begin in July and take 18 to 24 months"

'Abramson called the project the "most important" his office has worked on in the past four years"


If it had been so important it would have already been done. We heard it before. We heard it will be next year for the last 4 years and now it looks like our next LIE will be 2 more years. I will believe it when I see it.

This crooked administration has failed public safety time and time again. He found plenty of money to buy up land for his big City of Parks project and all sorts of other pet projects but we are still on the same crappy system held together with duct tape and coat hangers.

Screw you Jerry I am tired of all your lies and half truths and patting yourself on the back.

What I can't understand is why the news agencies perpetuate Jerry's image. The article could just had easily have read "Mayor Abramson's office announced it will be yet another 2 years to bring Metro Safe online. His abysmal failure to live up to his campaign promises on uniting county and city police and fire agencies and merging radio systems has fallen well short of the mark once again."

How long will the voters in Jefferson County put up with someone that is never there in a crisis, doesn't live up to his promises and treats his employees like dirt?

Despite all of the rhetoric, my own personal opinion is: it's about time! *All other things set aside,* the merging of the radio dispatch systems is way past due.

Mayor Jerry's new budget

June 2nd, 2007 @ 5:22PM (17 years ago)

Any comments on Mayor Jerry's new budget? I assume that hiring 100 new officers is a smoke screen for filling over 100 exisitng vacancies. How about the quote in the Courier where he states that Union employees are averaging 4-6% raises this year?

I have just read all of these comments about the dispatchers, and I have to say that I am shocked.

All I know is that dispatch has saved my a$$ more than once urban and suburban.

On late watch in the 2nd out with one person alone with a subj. with a knife in a little standoff @ 38th and RiverPark not answering the radio because I was dealing with what was in front with me the radio knew something was wrong.

When I had a 10-50, I was telling the radio I was ok, and she knew better by the sound of my voice, or out in the middle of nowhere alone with 2 subjects refusing to cooperate the radio not knowing where I was at but made sure someone was coming.

I hope there are no officers that actually believe any of these comments.

Because if you do then you probably do not do enough to depend on the radio.
