Chico dispatcher up for national award

Apr 2, 2015 4:53 PM by News Staff

A Chico Police Department dispatcher is getting national recognition as a finalist in the Smart Telecommunicator Awards.

Sheri Marshall is one of 40 dispatchers in the United States up for the award, but if she's going to take home the top prize she needs the communities help.

Smart Telecommunicator Awards is a program which recognizes and rewards 9-1-1 telecommunicators for their contributions to their 9-1-1 agency and community.

Marshall has been in a dispatcher for almost 30 years. She has dedicated herself to being the best dispatcher she can possibly be, and has committed to training those coming into the profession. She has a love for life-long learning and for instilling that in others.

While the winner of the competition gets a well-deserved $1,000, Marshall says she will donate any winnings to the Chico Animal Shelter.
