Thank you from your APCO Board for helping make last week’s conference a huge success. Preliminary numbers suggest the highest attendance for the fall conference to date!
Again, you should receive a survey via email asking for feedback and suggestions on how we can continue to improve the conference and provide these invaluable trainees to you, the FIRST first responders.
Do you love going to work every day because you have the absolute BEST supervisor in the State?! Are you a top notch FIRST, first responder because you had the BEST CTO in the state? Does your I.T. team come running in the middle of the night when CAD crashes? Do you work with the coolest, calmest FIRST, first responder who you want to be like when you grow up? Is your shift the one that everyone else wishes they were on? Share it with the group by nominating those people for the 2019 Texas APCO Awards which are announced at the 2020 Texas Public Safety Conference in Galveston!
Effective September 1, 2019, the State Legislature voted to include emergency dispatchers in the umbrella of first responders. Click here to read about our success on CNN.
Even more good news comes with this recognition: Wayland Baptist University has invited us to take advantage of their Law Enforcement Scholarship and Academic Program!
Good afternoon: I wanted to let you know that starting with our upcoming Winter term, certified dispatchers in the great state of Texas now qualify for the Law Enforcement Scholarship and Academic Program offered at Wayland! Spouses and dependent children also qualify. You can read more here. Look for the red text! Please help us get the word out to all your dispatchers. Let me know if you have questions or need more information. As always, thanks for what you do. Sincerely, Dr. Daniel Brown Executive Director of Strategic Initiatives (806) 291-3416 Wayland Baptist University 1900 W. 7th St. CMB 1305 Plainview, TX 79072
