Ottawa Police Dispatch Center Renamed

Posted by wlpo on November 2, 2009

A longtime employee of the Ottawa Police Department is now forever enshrined.

A dedication ceremony was held Friday in renaming the renovated Ottawa Police Dispatch Center to the “Maribeth Radtke Memorial Emergency 911 Center”.  Radtke died in October of 2007, just a few months after retiring from the police department.  She was a member of the 9-1-1 Board for the city and stayed on until the dispatch center was upgraded.

Radtke started at the Ottawa PD as a dispatcher in 1974.  She later moved onto becoming a records clerk.  Her last job was an administrative role as communications office manager.
