When Seconds Count….

Denise Amber Lee Foundation


We are honored to announce that, in three days’ time, we reached over 100 public safety professionals in the Western Kentucky and West Tennessee area by hosting a regional training event.


Nathan Lee and Geoff Weiss of the Denise Amber Lee Foundation brought us a profound first-hand look at the case that shocked a community and then the nation—the abduction, rape and murder of Nathan’s 21-year-old wife, Denise. Not only did it give the opportunity for the public safety professionals to see the parts of the story that can never be fully told in news clips, but also to hear the perspective of a member of the victim’s family/an involved party.


The mission of the Denise Amber Lee Foundation is to promote and support public safety through uniform training, standardized protocols, defined measurable outcomes, and technological advances to the 9-1-1 system.


One of their programs is “Dispatchers for Denise,” which they hope to be able to use to assist funding for training for personnel whose agencies are unable to pay for additional training.
