Whether a car accident, a burglary or an act of violence, the first to respond in any emergency situation is someone hidden from the public’s eye.
Auglaize County dispatchers were recognized by the county commissioners as part of National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week. A resolution stating that their work is “vital to the interest of the community” was signed at the Auglaize County Sheriff’s Office.
“It recognizes their services and their hours and things they deal with on an everyday basis and the stress that they’re involved with,” Auglaize County Commissioner John Bergman said. “We want to recognize their services to the community, and not just the local community, but the outside community, as well, because sometimes it goes across jurisdictional lines.”
