It was 30 years ago in December that I started in this stepping stone to a Police Officer job here in Worcester. One bad knee and several sharp turns on an obstacle course later, here i am. It didn't take long to figure out this is where I belonged. This IS my career. Now, over a quarter of a century later, I can look back and have that sense of self satisfaction only we in this crazy world of Public Safety Dispatching truly know.
After all this, I am still looking forward to retirement. But, not until we fix the Massachusetts, Group 1 - Group 2 retirement inequity.
I met a person who change my outlook when it comes to my chosen career. She brought me to an understanding that I should not retire until I have shared what I have learned over these years. I am truly looking forward to imparting my knowledge to all who are willing to listen! Thanks Kel!
