The Job Comes First – Devin Carrigan – EP 97

Devin Carrigan is a police officer, who started out as a dispatcher and after 2.5 years on the road, has decided to go back to dispatching.

I've been following Devin on Instagram for at least 2 years and I really wanted to get her on the podcast… So when she accepted to do so, I was really happy about it.

And I'm glad I got the opportunity to speak with her, because she shared something that I was not expecting.


  • 2.5 years in law enforcement
  • 8 total years in public service
  • Currently dispatching
  • Wisconsin
