Key West Police Chief Donie Lee, in an awards ceremony at the Grand Key Resort yesterday, named dispatcher Kristi Chaustit as the Civilian Employee of the Year 2016.
Chaustit came to the Key West Police Department in 2010 and serves an invaluable role as a Telecommunicator II.
“As a supervisor, she consistently sets a standard of professionalism consistent with the core values of the Department,” said Lee. “Her calm, compassionate and professional demeanor have aided the community during their most difficult times, whether she is taking information from frantic callers involved in accidents and injuries or reassuring a suicidal subject while swiftly dispatching officers to the aid.”
The award comes in recognition of her selfless professionalism and her dedication to public safety.
