Date of News Release: 10/21/2013
(Campbellsburg, KY) -- Two Kentucky State Police employees assigned to Post 5 in Campbellsburg graduated from the KSP Telecommunications Academy on Oct. 18. Owenton - resident Tyler Bush is a 2006 graduate of Owen Co. High School and a 2011 graduate of the University of Kentucky. He is the son of Bentley and Kay Bush of Owenton. Campbellsburg-resident Amanda Aylor is a 2002 graduate of Henry Co. High School and a 2004 graduate of Louisville Technical Institute. She is the daughter of the late Sandy Hogan and Debbie Hogan of Campbellsburg.
The two began their studies on Sept. 16 at the KSP Training Academy in Frankfort. The course provided 194 hours of instruction during a five-week period. The curriculum included subjects such as legal liability and limits of telecommunicator authority, the telecommunicatorís role in public safety, interpersonal communications, customer service, interaction with the news media, stress, ethics and confidentiality, responder safety, basic fire dispatch, state emergency operations plans and criminal justice information systems, cardio pulmonary resuscitation, first aid training, emergency medical dispatch and special needs callers. The final week of the academy included training on computer-aided dispatch and other databases. To complete the course, the telecommunicators were required to successfully process scripted calls for service and demonstrate proficiency in obtaining pertinent information, dispatching responders, providing emergency medical dispatch if needed and correctly documenting information from the call for service.
"Throughout the state, KSP telecommunicators provide a lifeline to both citizens in need and officers in the field," says KSP Commissioner Rodney Brewer. "They serve as an unseen, but vital link in keeping law enforcement officers and the public safe at all times of the day or night."
