National Public Safety Telecommunications Week
The Chatham-Kent Police Service is proud to recognize their 911 Communication Centre staff this week during National Public Safety Telecommunications Week. These dedicated dispatchers and call takers are more often than not, the unseen heroes heard only through phone or radio transmissions.
Our Communications Centre answers both emergency 911 calls and non-emergency calls for the service. They are the public’s first point of contact during an emergency where they are tasked with obtaining information in a timely and relevant manner. In turn they relay this information to our officers to ensure the safety of everyone involved. Our Communications Centre also dispatches for the Chatham-Kent Fire Department.
Recognize these heroes for providing the voice behind our local first responders.
The Chatham-Kent Police thank their dispatchers for their commitment and professionalism and for making a difference on every call.
This is National Public Safety Telecommunication Week (April 14th to April 20th)
