Denise Amber Lee was a 21-year-old loving mother of two boys, whose husband worked three jobs so that Denise could stay home and raise their children. Denise was abducted from the Lees' rented home in North Port, Florida in the middle of the day. Somehow the intruder gained entry and control of Denise, who most likely saved her children's lives. Denise's father, Detective Rick Goff, was able to call on all area state, county and municipal law-enforcement agencies to search for Denise and her captor immediately following her abduction.
In the hours that ensued, Denise fought mightily for her life. In her battle, she was able to use the captor's cell phone to call 9-1-1, an act she thought would save her life, just like we are taught as children.
She was not the only one to call 9-1-1 that day regarding this crime. There were at least four other calls, one from her distraught husband and three from eyewitnesses. One witness gave the local sheriff's department an exact location of the crime happening right before her eyes. She stayed on the phone for more than nine minutes, identifying cross streets as she continued driving. Despite the fact that as many as four patrol cars were within a mile of the car in which Denise was fighting for her life, due to inefficiencies in the call center, none were dispatched.
On the morning of January 19, 2008, a few heart-wrenching days after she went missing, her body was found.
This powerful class will be taught by Denise's husband Nathan Lee and a veteran supervisor of the 9-1-1 industry. They will discuss an In-Depth Analysis, Media Coverage, What Went Wrong, Court Testimony, Liability, Leadership, Accountability, Discipline, and Training/Hiring.
We have opened it to 70 students to allow as many Telecommunicators as possible to attend, this is the last time we will offer this class in FY 2016/2017.
