CO Anderson has not been with the Department very long, but her positive attitude and strong skill set have already gone a long way in bettering internal and external communications at the Division of Emergency Communications.
Let me give you this one example from her very last day of training: CO Anderson was operating Police Channel 2 when an officer advised that two individuals were acting “kind of funny.” She quickly identified the unit and got the vehicle description. It’s a good thing because seconds later, the suspects fled the scene.
Because CO Anderson was still in training, she had a safety net in training CO Smith, however, the net was not needed. CO Anderson performed her duties well, toning and simulcasting the event appropriately while notifying supervision and requesting additional units.
Two keys to being an effective communications officer are voice control and being able to process information quickly. During high impact events, this has to be done quickly and CO Anderson did just that and did it perfectly.
Good job and thank you to Communications Officer Sameika Anderson, our Communications Officer of the Month!
