When you think of your job, do you enjoy driving to the office every day?  What would it take to turn that around?  Alicia says she has found the answer, “I like my job, I enjoy coming to work every day.”

Alicia is a Communications Officer for the Washington State Patrol (WSP). She dispatches 911 calls and helps people in their time of need. There are more than 150 WSP Communications Officers around the state at eight separate Communications Centers. For Alicia, she says it’s more than a job, “It means you are part of a family. It means you are part of something bigger than anything that you thought of before.”

“Every single day, Communications Officers make a big difference in people’s lives,” says Communications Division Commander Heather Anderson.  “From getting injured people immediate medical aid, to helping clear collisions and traffic congestion, Communications Officers make a positive contribution.”

The WSP is currently hiring for more Communications Officers like Alicia who are looking for something more. “I get paid a decent wage,  I can provide benefits  for myself, and have awesome time off,” says Alicia. “Overall, it’s a great place to be and a great place to work.”
