what hinders a psap
What Hinders a PSAP?

In the recent WEP Survey, we asked for reasons a PSAP may not have applied or why they didn’t use all the funds.

Some we can help with!

we heard many suggestions
We Heard Many Suggestions
  • The survey also gave us valuable insight into how it might better serve the PSAP community!

“Provide me sub-regional programs. With budget restraints and shortage of personnel travel difficult to manage and cover PSAP requirements.”

“[Allow] for any dispatch related training to be covered.”

“I think allowing the PSAP to use it for other educational classes would be helpful. It would open the door to benefit more of the dispatchers.”

“Need to allow neighboring Jurisdictions to have a combined grant so that we can use the monies to help pay for mostly training.”

“Also an educational program for personnel new to the operation of a PSAP.”

“Provide additional funding to benefit a greater number of personnel.”
