Communications Officer of the Month

One of the only good things to come from tragedy is what it teaches us about how to better respond to such situations. At DEC, CO McKinley-Roehm took this to heart when she attended the APCO-NENA fall conference in Roanoke this past fall.

After hearing from the DEC director in Newtown, Connecticut—which handled the Sandy Hook shootings—CO McKinley-Roehm realized that our DEC did not have an Active Shooter policy. She felt it was important for her coworkers to be as prepared as possible should the unthinkable occur. So she attended the FEMA/Emergency Management Institute Active Shooter Course and began working with CO Supervisor James Gwynne and Training Officer Jerome Andrzejzak to draft a policy.

She reviewed similar policies from other jurisdictions and played an instrumental role in outlining the Telecommunicator’s Role into a Standard Operating Procedure. She then submitted a draft of the policy to the DEC Command Staff for approval.

CO McKinley-Roehm has gone above and beyond the expectations of a communications officer, taking advantage of every opportunity for training and making sure to share her knowledge with her coworkers. This makes DEC better for communications officers AND the community.

Thank you and congratulations to Communications Officer Stacy McKinley-Roehm, our Communications Officer of the Month!
