ABOVE VIDEO: 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.
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – When most people think about law enforcement agencies, they think about Patrol Deputies, Corrections Deputies, and Police Officers.
But without question, one of the most important roles in any law enforcement agency is the role of the Telecommunicator that serves as the life-line for our citizens and our Deputies.
These amazing men and women are the calming voice that those in need hear when they call 911 and the conduit between our citizens and Deputies who are responding to the call for help.
They hear and feel every emotional call and with great caution direct our Deputies to dangerous scenes and incidents where they know that unfortunately, they will often be in harm’s way.
It’s a job that requires passion, courage, and selflessness as they work long hours, handle multiple calls at one time, and stand as the first line of defense for our citizens and Deputies.
As we dedicate this week to all of our Public Safety Telecommunicators throughout Brevard County, we ask that you keep them and their families in your thoughts and prayers as they serve our citizens, our Law Enforcement Officers, our Firefighters, our Animal Enforcement Officers, our Lifeguards, and our community.
