MIAMI-BEACH-911-SLEEPING-AT-WORK

By April Taylor

Local News 10 of Miami Beach, FL is reporting that they are in receipt of several photos that show a police dispatch supervisor for the city of Miami Beach sleeping while on the clock.  According to a current employee of the police dispatch unit, sleeping on the job is not an unusual occurrence.  The employee is also reporting that sleeping on the job has been a repetitive issue within the Public Safety Communications Unit.

The person who submitted the photos of the supervisor sleeping says that they were of occurrences that occurred over the course of several days in November.  Apparently, similar photos to the ones submitted to Local 10 were previously submitted to an acting communications manager, but no significant action was taken in response to their submission.

In an interview of a retired Miami Beach dispatcher by Local 10, reporter Jeff Weinsier was told that sleeping on the job is unacceptable as it only takes seconds for something to occur that changes the shift from being mundane to requiring a dispatcher to be awake and alert to respond to a call for assistance.  The dispatcher who was interviewed indicated that there was more than one action where he experienced forced overtime when he was simply advised during his shift that he would be staying to work overtime without any prior notification.

Other dispatchers who were interviewed indicated that if forced overtime happened to be refused, there would be a written reprimand issued.  This issue of forced overtime with no way to decline the work may be part of what led to the supervisor sleeping on the job as it does not appear as though dispatchers were allowed to decline the overtime based on their own personal assessment about whether or not they were rested enough to work more than their scheduled shift.  The department has advised Local 10 that seven additional dispatchers are being hired to help alleviate the need for forced overtime.
