For Immediate Release

15-April-2013


The St. Louis County Police Department is once again participating in the National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week which is observed annually around the United States during the week of April 14 through April 20, 2013. This week honors the many telecommunications professionals who aid in providing 9-1-1 emergency assistance to citizens everywhere.

Every day, millions of people depend on the skill, expertise and commitment of public safety telecommunications professionals who help save countless lives by responding to emergency calls, dispatching emergency professionals and equipment and providing moral support to citizens in distress.

The term 9-1-1 is often associated with rapid emergency response, poise under pressure, aid and compassion in times of distress and critical decision-making within seconds. Many people do not stop to think about the seemingly nameless, faceless individuals who answer 9-1-1 calls until they experience actual emergencies themselves. These Telecommunicators make the difference between life and death in many instances.

Chief of Police Timothy Fitch stated, "Our Public Safety Dispatchers and Communications staff provides a vital link between the public and the police. Our Communication Center handles over one million calls for service each year, including 911 calls. I commend every one of our employees in the Bureau of Communications who give 100% every day."
