A Connecticut newspaper has thrown a spotlight on an on-going feud between officers and dispatchers at the town of Madison Police Department, documented by 160 pages of memos written over the last year. Newly-appointed police chief John Drumm is working to solve the dispute, which centers over alleged mistakes by dispatchers, and claims by the dispatchers that they're the scapegoat for officer errors. The comm center was operated by the police department until 2005, when it was moved administratively to the Emergency Management office. However, the center physically remained at the police department. The officers' complaints sometimes picked on typographical errors in the CAD entries, and which didn't affect locations or names. However, other errors included unverified locations and incomplete information. Read more here http://www.nhregister.com/articles/2010/02/01/news/shoreline/a1-mon-madispatcher-art-webthrow.txt

You'd the Madison officers would have bigger things to worry about, in light of the corruption related cleaning house that took place, and the general distrust by the public.

There actually is no feud between the dispatchers and the police. They all get along with the police officers great (mostly). There is no feud, hate, ill-will, or dispute.

All the complaints were filed by one miserable police Lt that hates anyone he doesn't have authority over. He's the proverbial jerk in the PD that hates everyone, everyone hates him, his family hates him, and he thinks he is the king of the word none the less. After filing hundreds of bogus complaints, he proceeded to tip-off the news media about all the complaints against the dispatchers, even though they're all complaints made by him. This is why the article is so vague. There really isn't much to write about.

(No, I don't work there.)
