Contact: Sergeant Greg Stark Release Date: April 17th, 2019 Time:1400 hours Dispatcher Appreciation Week

The week of April 15-21, 2019, is National Public Safety Telecommunicators Appreciation week, also known as Dispatcher Appreciation Week. Dispatchers are the front line contacts for all incoming 911 calls to our office. They let you know that you are not alone and help is on the way. They are the calm voice in that moment of need and are responsible for obtaining information to relay it to first responders (Fire, Medical or Law Enforcement) in the field. The Calaveras Sheriff’s Department Dispatchers answer approximately 40,000 911 and non-emergency calls per year.
To show your support please take a minute and talk about the proper use of 911 with your family. As any dispatcher will tell you, it’s not for weather checks, ordering pizzas, or complaints about slow traffic.

On behalf of the Calaveras County Sheriff Office, we say “thank you.” Thank you to all the public safety telecommunicators and dispatchers out there. And of course, we say a special “thank you” to our dispatchers.
