WARCOG 911 Dispatch - Core Values

Excellent Customer Service

Our organization exists because a desire for shared governance, equitable cost sharing, and superior customer service was desired by our Stakeholder agencies.  The staff of the WARCOG will strive for excellence, recognizing that our interactions with those we serve define us; we will endeavor to develop a relationship of trust with our communities.  


We value honesty, transparency, and ethical interactions that foster public trust and provide a strong foundation for future relationships. 


Above all else, we realize that we are here to meet the needs of the public and therefore we take ownership of, and responsibility for our decisions and actions.  We recognize the gravity our decisions can have on the outcome of an incident and the need for sound decisions, the use of good judgement, and collaboration with our team.


We owe each other a working environment characterized by trust and respect, fostering open and honest communications at all levels.  We will actively listen and try to understand others and will always treat all persons with respect, compassion, dignity and tolerance.


We strive for an environment which promotes a collaborative spirit, free of harassment, discrimination, and retaliation.  We want to develop an organizational culture that expects high performance, accountability, and sacrifice for others.  We will consistently do more than is expected and challenge ourselves to grow professionally and personally daily.


We recognize the importance of our role in the emergency response system and strive to keep our citizens and first responders free from danger by maintaining situational awareness, communicating effectively with our partner agencies.  With a commitment to training and personal development, we can help mitigate risk to the public and our members at fires, police, and medical emergencies.


Our team is supportive of each other's efforts, loyal to one another, and care for each other both personally and professionally.  We recognize each other’s weaknesses and celebrate each other’s strengths, valuing every individual for their unique skills, talents and contributions.  We trust one another to prepare in such a way that puts the reputation of the team and the WARCOG first.


Each of the core values above provides an ingredient that defines professionalism.  Our members must possess a positive attitude, a strong focus on customer service, and conduct themselves in a manner befitting our role as a professional public safety dispatcher, entrusted with the safety of our communities’ officers and citizens.  The preservation of life begins with the members of the WARCOG.
