The head of Maine's Department of Public Safety says the agency is taking steps to address claims that a dispatch center in Augusta is significantly understaffed.
Commissioner John Morris says that recruiting qualified and skilled applicants who pass state-lead background checks and polygraph tests can be difficult, but the agency is working to address the issue.
"We're recruiting everywhere,” he says. “Job fairs, veteran's fairs, web, Facebook and the career centers for the state of Maine. So we're moving forward."
