The Washington State Patrol offers this virtual ridealong  to experience what it's like to be a communications officer. And Kitsap 911  offers a taste  of what it's like at a county Public Safety Answering Point.

McKenzie Rahn, with Spokane Regional Emergency Communications,  talks about  how she made the transition from working in retail to working as a communications officer. "A lot of us don't necessarily have the opportunity everyday to give back to the public so that's something I really enjoy about this job," she notes.
