Cherokee County E 9-1-1, Georgia
Chief Collett’s retirement announcement.
There has already been a local newspaper article about former Cherokee County Chief Marshal Chris Collett’s retirement from his position. He has already provided statements and his work history has been outlined. So why have we as Cherokee County E 9-1-1 decided to place an article on our website about this? Especially since announcing his retirement on Tuesday May 27th, 2014?
We believe that it is our opportunity to express what Chief Collett as done for Cherokee County E 9-1-1. Chief Collett accepted his position as Director of 9-1-1 in December of 2008. As soon as he did, he started making things happen for the betterment of the center. He moved people into different positions because he saw a skill set in them that maybe no one else did. Or maybe he wanted to challenge the person professionally to make them better. Regardless of his reasons, he ultimately put this agency in a position to be successful. He knew how to do this as he had a history of successful projects when he worked with the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office.
Under his tutelage, Cherokee County E 9-1-1 acquired several accolades not only as an agency but within certain divisions and individually. Some examples of these are Cherokee County E 9-1-1 becoming CALEA accredited in 2012 and being named APCO Communications Center of the Year. We also achieved an audit with 100% compliance in our Georgia Criminal Information Center bi-annual audit of records. This is not an easy accomplishment considering that the Georgia Bureau of Investigation conducts the audit. Also, several employees received Communication’s Officer awards (e.g. APCO Supervisor of the Year, MADD Comm. Officer of the Year, etc.). One of the final acknowledgements was receiving APCO Project 33 certification for our Training Department in August of 2013.
Chief Collett’s leadership and encouragement had an impact on this agency that only made us better for having him as a part of our agency. He conveyed trust and decision making in all that we did. He also helped our agency become more recognized throughout the county.
We wish him the very best on his future endeavors.
