Nearly 25 years ago, I walked into Phoenix Police Communications to begin my classroom training to be a 911 operator. There were initially 2 other people in my tiny class, but 1 of those dropped out quickly. The other, Zachia Villanueva, and I, went through class, then on the job training together. We have always stuck by each other, through good times and bad, professional and personal, and helped each other prepare for moving up within the bureau. We have long referred to ourselves as A to Z, and will continue to enjoy our friendship long after we both retire!
