Standout Bremerton State Patrol Dispatcher Off to Bellevue


The Washington State Patrol’s “calm and cool” dispatcher Jonathan Pitts is off to Bellevue.

Pitts, who we profiled back in February, has earned a promotion that puts him a step up on the state patrol’s ladder but keeps him a dispatcher. He’ll go from Bremerton to Bellevue, by way of Olympia, for a ceremony in Olympia Tuesday honoring the accomplishment.

State patrol spokeswoman Krista Hedstrom said their district 8 office — which includes Bremerton and the Kitsap Peninsula — was happy for Pitts, but not happy to see him go.

“I know we would all like to have him back,”  she said.

Pitts was the recipient of the state patrol’s dispatcher of the year award this year.
