Mayor Rogers states that Dispatchers are the single vital link for our police officers, firefighters and emergency medical personnel by monitoring their activities by radio and providing them information to insure their safety. He added that they have contributed substantially to the apprehension of criminals, suppression of fires and treatment of patients in our community while exhibiting compassion, understanding and professionalism during the performance of their duties. The proclamation coincides with National Public Safety Telecommunications Week being celebrated April 14 through 20, 2013.
