Photo - Each year, the second full week of April is dedicated to the men and women who serve as public safety telecommunicators. It was first conceived by Patricia Anderson of the Contra Costa County (Calif.) Sheriff's Office in 1981 and was observed only at that agency for three years. Members of the Virginia and North Carolina chapters of the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials (APCO) became involved in the mid-1980s. By the early 1990s, the national APCO organization convinced Congress of the need for a formal proclamation. Rep. Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.) introduced what became H.J. Res. 284 to create "National Public Safety Telecommunicator Week." According to Congressional procedure, it was introduced twice more in 1993 and 1994, and then became permanent, without the need for yearly introduction. We wanted to thank our public safety telecommunicators, or as we call them Dispatchers, for all the great work that they do day in and day out. It is a very stressful and difficult job and of course our officers never give them any attitude or added stress in anyway. =-) At the direction of Chief Pendleton, Traffic Officer Dave Anderson set up this sign along the dispatch center this week. We thank you for the work you do. (16)
