El Paso County Sheriff's Office and Bel Air High School

Expand Their Mentoring Collaboration

The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office and the Bel Air High School Corrections Program have expanded their joint effort to assist adolescents’ transition into service-minded adults by expanding into the Law Enforcement Communications Field. EPSO Communication Specialists are responsible for maintaining contact between Sheriff’s Office personnel, the public, and other law enforcement or fire agencies. They coordinate emergency and non-emergency response of law enforcement, fire and medical services to the community. They receive and report information by radio, computer, and telephone.

On April 06, 2015, the first two students began shadowing EPSO Communication Specialists at their duty station. Though both students have received their Communication Certification, exposure to the true work environment will provide a full view of the position’s duties. “Being a Communication Specialist is stressful, requiring excellent interpersonal communication skills and a calm demeanor. I hope being mentored by our Communication Supervisors and seeing the rewards of this field, allows these young ladies to make a solid, educated decision in their career choice,” said Lieutenant Michaela Hebeker.
