The Good Ones: Loveland dispatcher helped save student's life over the phone

This story is about a public servant doing the right thing. You know, like 99% of them do every day and never make the news.

We'd like to introduce you to Erin Berry, a dispatcher for Loveland Police Department.

This isn't about a police officer, or firefighter, or dispatcher who got in trouble. This is about one of the Good Ones, because as we know, they're almost all good ones. Those just aren't always the ones who get any recognition.

Berry just won the title of "International Dispatcher of the Year." She was nominated for not only being so solid at her job every day, but for helping a a student, through the phone, to perform CPR on another student.

"(Winning) represents the great things like the life saves we do. Mine just happened to get recognized," she says.

Thanks for your hard work, Erin.

If you know any more good ones like her, let us know. Send at email to
