Did you know telecommunicators service well over a million calls a year!
This is one of the main reasons that in April we recognize National Public Safety telecommunicators Week. During this week, public safety telecommunicators from across the country are honored for their service to the communities and public safety departments in which they work.
The Dallas Police Department is very proud of our call takers, dispatchers and support staff who are often the lifeline between the community and officers. These heroes stay calm in the most chaotic situations and bring comfort to those in need of help. In the words of Assistant Chief Shaw “you are truly the first responder for our first responders and our citizens, thank you”. We truly appreciate your hard work and dedication.
