Telecommunicators, Call-Takers, and Technicians are the Heroes Behind the Scene
Springfield, IL – The Illinois State Police (ISP) is recognizing 911 Operators and other behind-the-scenes-heroes who dispatch Troopers and officers from other state agencies in emergency situations.
The recognition comes during National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week, April 8-14, when the public safety community formally acknowledges the contributions and sacrifices of all Telecommunicators, Call-Takers, and Technicians.
“Our telecommunications professionals are some of the best in the country,” said ISP Director Leo P. Schmitz. “They play a vital role in the safety of our officers and work around the clock to ensure that emergency assistance is provided when requested. They hold one of the least visible, yet most critical jobs in public safety.”
