Police dispatchers honored this week

Posted by wlpo on April 10, 2016

A police officer’s lifeline is otherwise, known as the dispatcher. The telecommunicator or dispatcher is being honored nationwide this week for keeping a “cool head” in a trying situation.  Not only do they relay info to an officer and monitor his status,  they take calls from the public.

Some are frivolous while others are placed in a fluid high risk situation.  Dispatchers have taken calls from children who wonder why a parent is unresponsive.

You can help by calling when there’s a true emergency –  a fire,  a serious health issue; even someone threatening physical violence.  You are asked to try and remain calm and give all necessary information;  so help can be sent quickly.
