Local Dispatcher Awarded Statewide Recognition #ShareGJ

Posted on

20160406_103133-1Brett Loeb, the administrative supervisor of the Grand Junction Regional Communication Center, has been selected as a recipient of the Public Safety Communications Line Supervisor of the Year award.  This recognition is awarded by the Colorado Association of Public Safety Communications Officials.

Brett started with the GJRCC in 2008, and was quickly promoted to a supervisor in 2009.  Brett is responsible for managing the incredibly complex schedule of 35 telecommunicators and seven supervisors in the center, as well as the recruiting, hiring, and oversight of the training program.

In 2015, Brett was an instrumental part of a team of Communication Training Officers that overhauled the training program for dispatchers.  This collaborative effort resulted in an astounding 100% retention rate of trainees in the Communication Center last year.  That’s incredibly difficult to accomplish in any line of work, but is especially significant in a profession for which so few are equipped.

Grand Junction Regional Communication Center Manager, Monica Million, pictured here with Brett at the award ceremony in Denver last week, states, “Brett’s methodical approach to researching, mining out root causes to issues, and implementation of his ideas has proven to be the catalyst to our greatest success.  He is incredibly deserving of this statewide recognition, and we couldn’t be more proud, or more fortunate, to count him as a member of our team.”

Congratulations, Brett!

    Thank you for letting us know about the talented and dedicated people we have here in our GJPD. In a time when we have had so much turnover in some city jobs, it is nice to know there are steady and strong individuals providing public services that are so important to us. Congratulations to Brett.
