The Douglas Police Department is grateful of the men and women of the communications division during National Public safety Telecommunicator’s week. A dispatcher is the calm voice in the chaos of a storm. They are the first point of contact. A dispatcher is the unseen hero! As part of their duties, they receive emergency and non emergency calls. A dispatcher transmits emergency information to firefighters, medical personnel and law enforcement. They equip these agencies with information in the shortest time possible, all while maintaining a serene atmosphere in high stress situations. A dispatcher is the lifeline, the unseen face, the forgotten hero. Thank you! For your sacrifice, for the professionalism you display on a daily basis and for all the little things that add up. You go above and beyond your scope of duties. Keep up the great work! Just A Dispatcher I TAKE A BREATH AS I SIT DOWN, GOD GIVE ME STRENGTH TO MAKE THIS ROUND SO MANY LIVES, I HOLD IN HAND, SO MANY PEOPLE WITH DEMANDS. MY FIRST CALL, A CHILD IS SCREAMING, DADDY'S BEATING MOM AND SHE'S NOT BREATHING. IT'S HARD TO DEAL WITH AND STAY CALM, THE CHILD YELLS, "DAD'S GOT A GUN!" I HAVE TO TAKE CONTROL AND SAY, PLEASE SLOW DOWN THEY'RE ON THEIR WAY AS I DISPATCH TO MY DEPUTIES, "10-47, THERE ARE WEAPONS" TEN THOUSAND THINGS RUSH THROUGH MY HEAD, GOD I PRAY SHE'S NOT DEAD. STAY ON THE PHONE AND TALK TO ME, AS I RISE TO MY FEET. THE COPS ARE HERE THE CHILD IS SAYING, STAY ON THE LINE AS I START PRAYING. "BE ADVISED HE HAS A GUN, AND HE ALSO HAS HIS SON." NOW I HAVE AN OPEN LINE, JUST A DISPATCHER IN THE BLIND "DISPATCH," I HEARD HIM SAY, "HIS NAME IS TEDDY AND HE'S OKAY." THEY CLEAR THE SCENE FROM THE CALL, NOT ONE DEPUTY HAD TO FALL. I TAKE A BREATH AS I SIT DOWN, THANK YOU GOD, WE MADE THAT ROUND. I'M JUST A DISPATCHER, CAN'T YOU SEE JUST A LIFELINE BETWEEN YOU AND ME. Author: Donna Lindsey
