Becky Atkinson 15-year Police Dispatcher Retires

Ms. Becky Atkinson for the last 15 years has been answering emergency telephone calls and dispatching police officers to every type of “call for service.” At the end of this week, she will retire.

Ms. Atkinson has been a very dedicated communications professional. Her clear voice and calm demeanor is a hallmark of her dispatching career. Ms. Atkinson was not a rookie when she came to the Overland Park Police as she had four years prior experience with the Kansas City Missouri Police Department. We are grateful to Ms. Atkinson for her dedication to our police department and the citizens we serve.

All of Ms. Atkinson’s friends and coworkers wish her the very best in retirement.
