A handful of supervisors at the Miami Beach police dispatch center were caught sleeping on the job, as photos of them were taken during their shifts.
According to Local10.com, the employees were seen sleeping at their stations over a course of several days back in November.
The site reports that sources revealed the dispatchers are forced to work overtime, and have to work ridiculous hours most times. Another source said:
“It is very unacceptable. You never know when something is going to go down. This job can go from zero to 60 in a matter of seconds. You need to be awake and alert. Someone could miss a call for assistance.”
The site reports that there now may be cameras installed in the dispatch center in order to monitor the employees’ behavior, but it sounds like they need to hire more staff.
