DCJS Standards

 I believe that the current 40 hr instructional period be extended to 80 hrs. The training should include the day to day systems we all use including but not limited to GIS, CAD (generic of course), radio systems and Next Gen technolgy. The current curriculim is way outdated and needs to run with current technolgies. 

 The term Dispatcher needs to be replaced with Public Safety Telecommunicator.
