On Monday, Nov. 2nd a dispatcher with Seaford Police Dept. in Seaford Delaware made a very bold and degrading comment that impacted the community and surrounding areas near and far. Her statement pertaining to a Homicide in Dover Delaware was "DPD shouldn't waste another minute or the chance of officer safety on these trashy smucks...... Leave them in the streets eventually the city, street dept, or relative will come along and claim the body....... it's annoying".
She is a dispatcher that is the first point of contact for any emergency call for help. Her bias and insensitive personal feelings (in which she chose to post on social media) really have no place in a profession that provides services for those in the community.
How can citizens feel comfortable and reassured that when they call 911 for help that dispatcher Angie Marie Cowgill will execute her duties accordingly with bias or prejudice.
This could be your child, niece, mother, father etc needing help!
Emergency dispatchers need to have empathy and compassion and truly her statements seen by many does not display that.
If Angie Marie Cowgill is removed from her position within the Seaford Police Department it will give the citizens of an already scarred community a sense of relief knowing that they can call 911 without judgement.
