Telecommunicators: Voices that save lives
from By Keith Funderburk
The voice that saved a life, but was not recognized. The unseen hero who is the life line of all officers. Telecommunicators keep everyone safe by their quick thinking and communicating ability. I never realized the complexity of the telecommunicator profession until recently. The dispatchers are the forgotten heroes who deal with life-and-death situations daily and succumb to the same physical and mental issues of a line officer, but they do not get the benefit of closure.
