Do a lot of officers have trouble with dispatchers? In my country we have too few, and oficers sometimes take over for them on breaks. As a result they're highly apreciated. But I've hear other agencies complain a lot about them. i work as a control tech (basically a jail dispatcher) and part time as a reserve deputy... My question is if dis[patchers are as bad elsewhere as I'd believe only on gossip in my area (and forums like this one). Our dispatchers are a wonder when I do reserve duty and am in a car by myself. I don't know patrol radio etiquette as well as jail radio etiquette and dispatchers have saved me (on the phone).
