Today begins National Telecommunicators week. We would like to take the time to thank ALL of our NCSO Dispatchers. A dispatcher is generally the first point of contact, the true first responder, and the unseen hero. A dispatcher’s job is a complicated one. It is exciting, rewarding, fulfilling, and becomes a way of life. It is also stressful, exhausting, thankless, and forgotten by so many. So again, thanks for all of your hard work and dedication to NCSO. Have a great week.

On October 20, 2017, School Resource Officer Keith Wilson began Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) for Northumberland Elementary School 5th grade students. D.A.R.E. is an education program that seeks to prevent use of controlled drugs, membership in gangs, and violent behavior. They have had a great year. We are planning to have a D.A.R.E. Graduation for the children in April. During this event, they will be given a gift, and a cookout for their hard work. We are also planning to have other first responders there on display. We are asking for sponsors to help make this a special recognition. Any monetary contributions will be greatly appreciated. Contributions can be made out to the Northumberland County Sheriff’s Office/D.A.R.E. Program. Thank you for your time.
