Roger Sprott, RLEA Chief Instructor, and Kelsey Dean, PSAP specialist, attend a Georgetown career fair.

The CAPCOG Regional Law Enforcement Academy and Emergency Communications Division attended a career fair at Georgetown High School to educate students and their parents about becoming a peace officer, jailer and emergency telecommunicator and how these positions have an invaluable role in every community.

“In public safety, there are several career paths people can take, and it’s important that students know all their options to make informed decisions,” said Kelsey Dean, CAPCOG public safety answering point specialist. “Many students don’t even know becoming an emergency telecommunicator is an option they can pursue right out of high school.”

Peace officers and emergency telecommunicators are positions in high demand by local governments. There are currently 13 agencies seeking emergency telecommunications positions at the 29 public safety answering points, or 9-1-1 call centers, throughout the region. Several jurisdictions are also seeking peace officers.
