The week of April 11-17, 2010 is National Public Safety Telecommunications Week, otherwise known as Dispatcher Appreciation Week. Dispatchers are an integral part of the Law Enforcement team. The Arcadia Police Department Dispatchers are also our call takers and many times the first contact for persons communicating with the Police Department. They not only communicate with the public, but are usually inputting data into a computer, monitoring and talking with patrol units, and coordinating all field activity for the Department.
Often times we don't take the time to say "Thank You" for a job well done to our Dispatchers. The members of APD would like to join others throughout the Nation and our Community to express our true appreciation and thanks to our Arcadia Police Department Dispatchers!
