National Telecommunicator Week April 10-16th

AREA - ( April 11, 2022) - National Telecommunicator Week is April 10 - 16, and public safety agencies throughout the United State recognize the critical role played by Public Safety Telecommunicators known as 9-1-1- dispatchers.

In Lawrence County, emergency calls are answered in two locations which include City of Bedford and Lawrence County Sheriff's Department. The Mitchell City Police Department dispatch merged into the Lawrence County Sheriff's Department after state legislators changed the law requiring only one dispatch per county.

Behind every emergency is a 911 dispatcher

This week we honor, these dedicated professionals to get emergency help where it is needed.
