Yeah, it's pretty silly the way it's being handled. It's been the overnight shift, primarily. It would make more sense to bring in off-duty, or injured, trooper and pay him overtime. To switch dispatching duties to a single dispatcher in the busiest Troop (C) in the state is very poorly thought out. MHP is notorious for terrible management and this is just another example.Noticed the past couple days that MHP District 1 (Jackson) is also dispatching for District 9 (Brookhaven) on the MHP District 1 / C Troop talk group. Seems as the dispatchers are really getting their workout not being familiar with the area.
Don't think it's consolidation, more like short a couple of fulltime dispatchers from the sound of it. Noticed a couple of the longtime female dispatchers have been MIA. In the old days, Troop M would assign a trooper to fill the vacant shifts. Seems as though they're doing this to save $$$, but I don't think it's part of a bigger consolidation effort. Just dealing with staffing issues.Sounds like a consolation of dispatch
