National Public Safety Telecommunications Week, which is designated as a time to recognize the amazing work of our very own Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Communications Center as well as Telecommunicators throughout Brevard County.

When a critical incident is taking place, this highly qualified team not only work to keep our Deputies updated and safe but to also talk our citizens through the worst imaginable situations possible.

All too often we fail to realize just how essential this team of professionals are to our agency’s mission. Unfortunately, most don’t realize the concern and stress they feel when one of our team members is in harm’s way.
