San Juan – The Secretary of the Department of Public Safety (DSP), Pedro Janer, said Thursday that the agency he directs bought laptops for use by operators of the 9-1-1 Emergency System and other security agencies.
“We have already purchased laptops for each 9-1-1 tech operator, so they can take them home and work remotely. They are in the process of arriving. They have to be programmed, to be used by the 9-1-1 radio operators, ”Janer said in an interview on Pegaos en la Mañana on Radio Isla with Julio Rivera Saniel.
Janer’s expressions arise after on Wednesday night the two centers in Puerto Rico of the 9-1-1 Emergency System were out of service due to COVID-19 infections among their employees.
The 9-1-1 operators were dispatched to their homes and their work was partially done by police officers and staff from the Emergency Management Bureau.
Regarding the date of purchase of the computers for the 9-1-1 operators, Janer avoided several times during the radio interview in giving a day or date of the acquisition.
Finally he said “the computers were bought a couple of months ago”, thereby establishing that the machines were bought in August.
