Questions Posted to "Ask a Dispatcher"

Q. Why can't reformed convicted felons work as a dispatcher?

Dear Juneau Resident,

I take it from your question you or someone you know is a reformed felon. That is fantastic! Many convicted felons donít turn their lives around.

The short answer to the question is a convicted felon canít get the security clearances necessary to query state and federal records that contain confidential information. That means the person canít do the basic job functions of a dispatcher. You could say that if you have a criminal record, you donít get to read, add to, or delete from criminal records. This restriction is in place even if someone is sooooo reformed they wouldnít even dream of deleting a former cellmateís arrest warrant as a Christmas present.

A reformed convicted felon has already shown great character by reforming. Good luck with job hunting! Fingers crossed that the reformed person will soon find a job they find rewarding.
