Civilian Clerks are “The Glue”
Yes, those clerks are the bomb, I don’t think I would have had a good day sometimes without these people, it didn’t matter what shift, it was good to have a civilian clerk around.
Once I would see these people I knew I was OK. The job has change a bit since the 90s for almost everybody, but in the good old days these people ran the show. This is one resource that should be used when having a problem on the job. When in doubt ask the clerk, if he/she doesn’t know the answer I’m pretty sure they will point you in the right direction.
Some of their functions they perform.
- Filling out logs, forms and records.
- Data entries vital to district operations.
- Answering of phones.
As simple as it might sound they do a lot more than the above list and they surely take a lot of the heat and nonsense away from the day to day operation from everybody trying to get their job done.
