Sheriff’s Office Celebrates National Public Safety Telecommunicators’ Week

The week of April 14th through April 20th, 2024, is National Public Safety Telecommunicators’ Week, officially marking the time each year when the Sheriff’s Office formally acknowledges the hard work and dedication of all Telecommunicators and Call-Takers.
Sheriff Kuhns states, “Telecommunications personnel are the critical lifeline for the Sheriff’s Office. Their efforts often mean the difference between life and death. They answer call after call, day and night, as their voices and actions guide both citizens and law enforcement alike in the most trying of circumstances. Telecommunicators are often the unseen and unsung heroes of emergency services. Very few professions are required to know so much, and tasked with so much grave responsibility. Our Telecommunicators affect people’s lives on a daily basis.
Please join us in expressing our sincere thank you to the men and women who serve the Effingham County Sheriff’s Office by working in Telecommunications. Their constant devotion to serving and saving lives in our community is a credit to this Office.”
