A hire from the Yolo County Emergency Communications Agency, where she dispatched for four police departments and 18 fire agencies, Pineda said she was inspired to become an emergency call dispatcher after receiving a recruitment email several years prior. She's an alum of Colusa High School and California State University, Sacramento.

"I am excited to be part of this community and look forward to helping those in need," Pineda said.

Pleasanton PD announced Pineda's arrival during the lead up to National Public Safety Telecommunications Week -- which honors emergency dispatchers this week.
