E911 Operators Say They Feel Underpaid, Under-Appreciated

Addressing the issue of pay raises for 911 operators, Wiz Miller's socialist ideology is front and center.
"There’s funding there,” Miller said. “However, they are employees of DeKalb County just like every other employee. We try our best, even in these hard economic times to adequately and fairly compensate our employees".
What a crock of shit. If there's parity in the county, then why is Burrell Ellis and all his minions making exorbitant amounts of money and car allowances?

Hey Wiz, why don't you reduce your salary on par with the a topped out communications operator? You elitist hypocrite!

Beats me why anyone would want to do that stressful job. For the love of God, if the money is there, just give it to them!!! HOW MUCH MORE MONEY ARE YOU COSTING THE TAXPAYERS WIZ BECAUSE YOU DON'T SEEM TO UNDERSTAND HOW MUCH LESS EXPENSIVE EMPLOYEE RETENTION IS THAN RECRUITING, HIRING, TRAINING NEW EMPLOYEES????
WTF

You work in DeKalb Public Safety and feel over worked, underpaid, and unappreciated? There's a support group for that. It's called "DeKalb Public Safety Employees." We meet at the bar. Hope to see you there.

Hmmmmmmmmm sounds like the Police Department and Fire Department as well. The Commisioners have money in the budget they just choose not to dispurse it to public safety. They just continue to give their immediate office employees and themselves raises and bonus check throughout the years. We are still and will continue to lose all the best employees to other agencies as long as this crap continues. No 40 person academy will come close to replacing the amount of personnel we have lost.... Even so it will take years after that to gain the experience.

I thought Wiz Miller's job position was abolished. I haven't seen him in over a year. I guess I must have missed something. Oh well back to my nap.

DeKalb County is sinking like a turd in a toilet bowl! How long till it hits the bottom?

Look at all the great PD supervisors that have left prematurely only to start anew elsewhere after the struggle to get promoted at DeKalb. Clearly it's not worth it here.

Wiz Miller I think is now head of the E911 department. It was Burrell's way of keeping him on after the funding for the useless and irrelevant public safety director was eliminated. With new cities popping up (Brookhaven, Ga), the good ones will go there and get the pay they deserve. You don't want to end up like Fulton with operators dispatching calls to the wrong locations. Have you guys heard that the Cobb County Grand Jury issued a report about police pay for the Cobb County PD. Apparently, they are leaving for better pastures as well. Yes, the good old Cobb County that people were on here saying they would love to work for. They are losing officers due to pay issues and whatnot.

So what are you going to do about it genius WIZ?? Ellis? Board of Crooks? Let me guess, we will give all employees one percent raises, then raise insurance contributions again to make up the difference so we can still get our fried chicken, watermelon, and grape soda delivered everyday.

Dekalb County is not like a turd, but IS A LARGE TURD which has sunk this county beyond the toilet bowl. Actually, it is down underground in the septic tank. Its a shame that the BOC & the CEO and his bunch aren't in that tank where they belong.

Dekalb County back in the 70's and early 80's used to be THE top notch county in the state. Then when Levitax got elected, things started to go down hill. Then came the days of VJ (Verneral Jones) who totally made a mess of things.

Now that mess has landed into the hands of VJ's protege' the Chief Embezzelment Officer (Ellis).

It is nothing more than one crook followed another crook and getting richer by the minute.

Dekalb has passed the City of Atlanta as being a disaster waiting to happen because its has already happened.

How does it feel to live, work, travel through, pay money for a county that does not give a shit about anything? WELCOME TO BURRELLVILLE, GA !!!

Operators join the club. For those of you that don't know, they are in the same boat as everyone else working in DeKalb. Some good ones and a lot of bad ones. They lowered the bar in that dept also. Half of them are lazy and have no clue. and some are very good and care. BOC doesnt give a rats ass about you either or your pay. They just want to get re elected and not cut jobs, Sanitation in case your wondering, parks and rec and so on. Garbage pick up 2 times a week same street? really? Cut jobs lil vern

Thanks bud......he is one of the biggest turds in the county...but that turd is taking over 185k a year from the rest of us.....good things come to those who wait!!! Club Fed is what I see in the near future!

To anon 1/21 1:03 p m There are many of us out here just like you who are patiently waiting for the Club Fed party to begin. Might be sooner than later. I surely would like to know exactly where those 911 jobs fairs are being held and where the positions for 911 are being advertised. Wiz, guess you are keeping that one a deep, dark secret.

For those at the top that think everything is good in the County...One question? Is the sky blue in your world??

Yes you all are important, but remember the economy is not and we in Decatur continue to rob and pillage. So the best thing to do is quit or just grin and bare it.

Just got my W2's today. My yearly pay went down for the third year in a row even though my employee evaluations are at the high end. Thank you BOC I wil continue to do my job how bout you.

If there WAS socialistic policies in place....then according to the definition, there WOULD be a distrituion of the wealth to all employees. Maybe you should use a dictionary before quoting Rush and Hannity. Idiots!

The City of Brookhaven can't come quick enough......

Conyers has 3 openings with pay grades based on experience and a take home car. You won't get a decrease in pay each year but an actual INCREASE like every other competently run department.

I'm wonder why I'm out humping calls everyday and bringing in tickets, arrest, and struggling to put gas in my car to come to work each week. I have a crime analysis officer at HQ with a takehome uniform patrol car. I see where my command staff places me in importance....last!!

I'm retired from the P.D. I received my 1099 from risk management. According to the county my gross pay was half what it was last year and taxable income was also at half. It didn't show any tax deductions for state or federal taxes. Idiots !

They're just gearing up for what's coming for remaining retirees.

Hey Idiot,
Perhaps it's you who needs to research the term socialism...I think if you do a little reading the concept is well in place in Dekalb.
