October 2010 Employee of the Month

Tina Brown

Police Department

Department Directors for the City of Porterville have selected Communications Dispatcher Tina Brown as the City of Porterville Employee of the Month for October 2010.

Dispatcher Brown has been employed with the City of Porterville since January 1998.  During her employment, she has been recognized and honored as the Dispatcher of the Year twice: first in 1999, and again in 2003.

Her recognition in 1999 stems from her handling of a robbery call at Tucoemas Federal Credit Union in February 1999.  She displayed a high level of skill, compassion, and professionalism which had a calming affect on the victim, eyewitness, and other callers.  Tina was able to obtain necessary and relevant information and promptly relay it to responding officers.  It was clear that her efforts contributed to an organized and effective response by officers to a dangerous and highly emotional event.

Her recognition in 2003 was based on what Tina is about as an employee and as a person.  Tina is full of life and energy; she is caring, confident, and sincere in everything she does.

As a dispatcher, Tina handles public requests that encompass medical aids, fires, and police incidents.  It all starts with a call into our dispatch center, and as citizens of Porterville, we are very fortunate to have a person of Tina’s caliber meeting our safety needs each time we call.

Tina is a resident of Porterville and a 1984 graduate of Porterville High.  She is married to Warren and they have three children, Krystal, Briana, and Brandon.  They also have two granddaughters, Brooklyn and Addisyn.
