The Grand Junction Police Department is pleased to recognize our 2016 Employee of the Year, Jeremy Duncan.
Jeremy is an Application Analyst for the Grand Junction Regional Communication Center, and has served in that capacity for over 11 years. Jeremy is responsible for the maintenance of the 911 telephone system, the public safety dispatching system, the emergency notification system, the 911 recording system, the radio system, and countless other applications that are critical to the job performance functions of our 911 telecommunicators.
Jeremy has been instrumental in a multi-year project to upgrade our computer aided dispatch software. Jeremy’s comprehensive understanding of the operations of the Communication Center, as well as his knowledge of how each of the 23 agencies prefer to be dispatched, meant that he was able to lead the build team to configure the system to best meets everyone’s needs. This was a fluid process, involving multiple changes and adjustments along the way, and Jeremy was consistently able to adapt to whatever was asked of him.
As if that weren’t enough, Jeremy spent hundreds of hours building, configuring, and testing a very complex upgrade to our public safety software suite, which includes systems required for the maintenance of all criminal justice records managed by our agency’s multiple departments. With the help of other IT analysts in the City, we were able to successfully go live with this upgrade in September of this year.
“Jeremy is great resource to our public safety community,” says Grand Junction Police Department Project Manager, Paula Creasy. “Jeremy is constantly called upon to solve technical problems, or to create a new way of doing something. Because of his innate ability to figure out solutions, Jeremy has become a resource not only to the Communication Center, but to public safety agencies all over Mesa County.”
Jeremy is a great example of the many employees at the Grand Junction Police Department who do the “behind the scenes” work to keep our agency running smoothly. Jeremy is a pleasure to work with, and we’re proud to count him among our ranks.
