LightBarsForSale.com said:one glaring thing I asked was - how could you turn over the reigns - knowing something was amiss? Don't understand how you could see her in this condition - end your dispatch shift and walk away... there should be some level of moral / professional responsibilty resting upon the prior dispatcher....
She could have been offered help if she would have asked for it, being caught at above .3 (well above both times she blew that night) does not offer her the chance. A female employee of the PD with twins (parkpiggy will understand) talked to her last week before the story broke and the former dispatcher admitted to drinking before coming in that day. I can tell you that the male that she relieved did not notice ANYTHING other except she was a little flushed (red) that day.ParkPiggy said:Not commenting on the specific situation, but to generalize- Someone blowing at .300 and being conscious, would have to be a functioning alcoholic. Being .300 would also likely require consumption while on duty. That all being said, and again generalizing and not commenting on this specific situation-anyone drinking to a point of being .300 should have been given an opportunity to get healthy and remain employed if successful.
