Bail Bonds an 911

The week of April 8-14, 2012 is "National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week". This is an opportunity to honor the women and men who serve as our Public Safety Dispatchers. They are the voice at the other end of the 9-1-1 call assisting a distraught caller and at the other end of the radio when police, firefighters, and medical personnel are responding to emergency situations. Often these "invisible" courageous professionals are the forgotten component of public safety.

Telecommunicators Week began in California in 1981 and quickly grew to national recognition. Just ten years later, Congress designated the second full week of each April as a time to remember the critical role that Dispatchers play in keeping us all safe.

If you've ever been the victim of a crime, been in a collision, reported a fire or needed emergency medical help, you've called 9-1-1 and been helped by a Telecommunicator, also known as a "Dispatcher". Not being visible or always recognized in the public eye, the critical role they play between the community and first responders is essential for every public safety call for service. Our Dispatchers are the direct link to our officers in the field. They monitor the radios, computers, phones, and more, answering thousands of calls from our community each year.

Please join us in conveying a BIG THANK YOU to the often heard but not seen "first of the first responders," our 9-1-1 Dispatchers and Call Takers.
