911 Dispatcher to Receive Award


Ventura County Sheriff’s Technical Communications Specialist Jeremy Kieffer has been selected as the 2016 Public Safety Dispatcher of the Year.  He will be honored at the annual Dispatcher Awards Banquet at California State University, Channel Islands on Sunday, April 17, 2016 at 5 p.m.  Jeremy was selected by his peers and supervisors to receive this award, which is presented to the outstanding dispatcher for their exemplary work and contributions to public safety and the residents of Ventura County.
Jeremy has been a dispatcher with the Sheriff’s Office since January, 2008.  During his time with the Sheriff’s Office, Jeremy has become an accomplished dispatcher and has established himself as a consummate team player. In addition to his challenging primary assignment, Jeremy trains newly hired dispatchers and is a key member on one of the communications center’s technical teams.
Sheriff dispatchers answer, assess, and refer 9-1-1 calls and business calls that come into the Sheriff’s Office. They are responsible for dispatching and coordinating patrol response to calls for service and at times, responsible for up to 70 patrol deputies in the field.  Dispatchers are among the first responders to emergency incidents and are expected to remain calm, professional, and proficient at all times. Jeremy’s peers can attest that he executes all of the above attributes while answering 9-1-1 and business calls or dispatching deputies on the radio. He is an extremely reliable employee with a powerful work ethic.
Congratulations to Jeremy Kieffer for being selected as the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office’s 2016 Dispatcher of the Year. For further information contact: Erin Brockus, Assistant Communications Manager, 805-654-5158.
