Two Northern Kentuckians recently graduated from the Public Safety Dispatch Academy, according to the Kentucky Department of Criminal Justice Training.

Kylee S. Kendall, Kenton County ECC, and Brayden Tolliver, Boone County PSCC, graduated from the Public Safety Dispatch Academy, and will now serve their respective communities.

“Your commitment to your community and the commonwealth is honorable,” Gov. Andy Beshear said. “You are the lifeline to those who are experiencing the roughest moments of their lives. Thank you for answering the call to serve and being the calm voice in the winds of chaos.”

Beshear, along with the Academy, announced that 25 dispatchers from across the state graduated from the program. 

Dispatch basic training is mandatory for any sworn or civilian employee who will dispatch law enforcement officers by radio at a Criminal Justice Information Systems agency. Graduates of the academy have successful completed a highly structured and comprehensive curriculum to satisfy mandated training requirements.

The graduates of Class 148 received 164 hours of academy instruction to satisfy these requirements over four weeks. Major training areas include identifying the role and responsibilities of the dispatcher, correct phone and radio procedures, handling emergency and non-emergency calls for service, emergency medical dispatch protocols and use of the state and national criminal databases.

“Choosing to become a member of a time-honored profession is admirable,” said Commissioner Nicolai Jilek. “It carries with it a commitment of honor and professionalism. I thank you for your commitment and wish you the best of luck in your careers.”

The Kentucky Department of Criminal Justice Training is a state agency located on Eastern Kentucky University’s campus. The agency is the first in the nation to be accredited under the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies’ public safety training program designation.
