The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department is proud to announce that CMPD employee Gina Thompson has been selected as the CMPD’s 2014 Telecommunicator of the Year. Gina was selected from a field of more than 100 telecommunicators who work in the CMPD’s Communications Division.
In 2013, CMPD telecommunicators received more than one million incoming 9-1-1 emergency calls, transferring calls for fire or emergency medical services to those respective agencies, and entering calls for service when police assistance was needed.
Last year, Thompson answered and processed 7166 of those emergency 9-1-1 calls. Gina exemplifies professionalism and her work ethic is second to none.
