Four dispatchers with the Consolidated Dispatch Agency were placed on administrative leave the same day a Tallahassee man ambushed and gunned down Leon County Deputy Chris Smith.

Timothy Lee, director of the city/county agency, said in a two-page memo sent Nov. 26 to city and county officials that the four public-safety communications officers were placed on paid leave pending the outcome of an internal review.

He did not elaborate on the reason why, though the memo discusses problems with the agency's "premise hazards and notifications," which are designed to give first responders any pertinent information about an address where they've been sent, including potential known dangers, the Tallahassee Democrat reports.
