Did you know that there is a week set aside every year, dedicated solely to showing appreciation to the hard-working dispatchers of departments across the country?
This morning, SCPD showed up at Santa Cruz Regional 9-1-1 bright and early with breakfast burritos and coffee for our dispatchers. SCPD appreciates all Dispatchers for the good work you do 24/7! It’s National Dispatcher Appreciation Week. SCPD Officers thanked them for their dedication to excellence.
Dispatchers are the ones behind the scene, who are often not recognized for their work. They are the people who answer when you dial 911 when you need help. They are the calm voice in a moment of need, and the ones who get the information to tell first responders where they are needed. SCPD salutes these unsung heroes.
The Santa Cruz Police Department would like to thank the men and women who serve as telecommunicators, call-takers, and technicians for their hard work and dedication.
