National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week April 8 - 14, 2018 I, along with the rest of my staff here at the Jeffersontown Police Department, want to publicly recognize and thank our Telecommunicators (Dispatchers) for their tireless dedication and commitment to their profession, to the officers of this department, and to our community. Telecommunicators work diligently behind the scenes to ensure that you as a citizen get the help you need should it be police, fire or EMS response. What they represent varies depending on the situation. They may provide driving directions or give some non-legal advice over the telephone. They may talk to a homeless person that comes into the lobby of the police department and who just needs someone to talk to. They may take your complaint and deal with you when you're irritated or angered and give you an avenue to vent and to properly address your issue. They may be that calming and reassuring voice on the end of your 911 call when you're dealing with what could likely be, one of the worst experiences of your life. What they are to us as police officers....they're our partners, our friends and our lifeline. We couldn't begin to do our jobs if not for all of the Telecommunicators doing theirs. Our staff of Telecommunicators here at the Jeffersontown Police Department is second to none and we are very proud to call them ours and call them family. Thanks for all you do! Chief Sam Rogers
