I really don't mind working 12's they were hard at first but now I kinda like them since I have more off days emoticon I live about 15 miles from work so it's not so bad.

Welcome AJOY1332,

I do the 12 hours too after doing 2 years of 9s. I don't find it too bad after you adjust. I also work days and nights, but mine are 2 days, 2 nights, 4 off. I have worked in Police Dispatch and 911 3 years come June. If you need anything just let me know.

You people who work solo in a dispatch center have to be the eighth wonders of the world. The two countys that bordered where I worked in Idaho were one dispatch agencies and when things got busy they got wild for them. My agency had a combined dispatch and we always had at least two and usually more on duty, so you could help each other, but those one person centers could be a nightmare.

Welcome Ashley!! I work in a somewhat small area as well. I really like dispatching, but I like corrections better. I started out in dispatch full time with jail duties, now I'm head of corrections with dispatch duties. Go figure ! !

Do you like the 12 hour shifts? I threatened to quit if we went to them. I live 43 miles from work, so a 12 hour shift would end up more like 14 hours for me.

I have 5 grandchildre, 3 grown children, am married (almost 26 years), and have 2 big dogs.

Hey everyone I'm Ashley I live in South Alabama. I just recently started dispatching. I just went solo in December...(started training in Oct) Our pd is pretty small..we have 4 officers a shift. It's usually pretty quiet but we do have a few hot calls every now and then. I love working there though! I alternate between nights and days each month..I'm on night shift right now doing 6p-6a. Looking forward to getting to know ya'll! emoticon
