Carla Dayman enjoyed her first day as the new Communications and Dispatch Officer for the Estevan Police Service.

"My first day was on Tuesday February 20th. So far there's a lot of information to take in but I think I'm going to really enjoy being part of thye team and helping to support the Estevan Police Service," explained Carla. 

"I think my favorite part is going to be being able to help out the community. Being that I support  the Estevan Police in their duties within the community but also when people are in trouble they'll be calling in and if I can help in any way to hook them up and get their troubles solved that would be good."

"Right now as I'm just starting there's so much to learn, I'm looking forward to learning everything. I haven't had the opportunity to listen to many calls coming in, so I'm interested and excited to start on the day shift when it's a little busier and just see how the day to day works."

"I know it can get pretty busy there so I'm excited to be busy and fielding the phone calls. I've been shadowing Brianne and she's been there for I believe 10 years and she's quite the expert at it. If I can maybe learn from her and how she does it all, that's probably going to be the best part," she stated. 

"I understand that day to day you can have 6 things at once that you need to get done and another day might be a little slower but I understand as well that there's always something to do, so that's the other part that I'm looking forward to." 

"I've been working part time for about 20 years as a part time fitness instructor for the Leisure Center and so coming back to working full time is something I'm really looking forward to," shared Carla.

"My first shift wasn't super busy it was a night shift but I was kind of glad of that because I've been told that it can be overwhelming. There's a vast amount of information you have to know from the codes and how to field the phone calls coming in to entering all the background information on the computer into the records."

"Some parts are going to be fun, I don't doubt it's going to be challenging and especially on the uptake when I 'm learning but I'm looking forward to it and I think it'll be really exciting."
