Our Site is still :

and a more thorough understanding of our profession.
Upcoming training and education courses.
Information regarding state regulations of PST's.

.......We are looking for individuals who
are dedicated to safeguard the lives and property of citizens; to assist in
gathering information so that our profession can get the recognition we deserve
and to enhance public safety communications.
Our hope is to create a strong network of PST
Professionals in New Jersey by combining your experiences, knowledge and expertise
that can help others achieve a goal of excellence in
Public Safety Communications. I started out by calling 50 police
agencies in a few counties as I was taking a salary survey for out contract
negotiations. As you must know, most complaints concerned finances, shortage
of workers. This lead me to believe that we need to find an avenue so that
our issues....the voice behind the scene....the ear on the other end of the
line....the one with a face, and a family and a life...the one that saves
seconds and lives needs to be heard to.
