Dispatcher Training

I believe that dispatchers in Virginia should be required to attend a minimum of 40 hours of in service and refresser training to update their knowlege and skills beyond general instructor and VCIN training.  Our jobs in this day and age are much more complicated.  due to increased use of technology and greater demand for services beyond what traditional police services existed when the orginal training standards were developed.
