National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week

I'd like to take a minute to thank and honor the unsung heroes of our job.  The 9-1-1 call center, and the dispatchers that not only tell us where to go, but are our life line while we are out there.

They are the "voice on the other end of the radio" when we are out there.  I know I have needed them when the shit has hit the fan, and I know they worry about me, and my fellow officers when they have to send us into harm's way.

So, a few funny memes I wanted to share...........

Sorry for those mic clicks.  It's not you, it's me.....
I don't mean to be snippy, but that 10-17 really pissed me off, and it's the third time I'v been there this week.

Admit it, it's funny!!!  I don't care who you are, you laughed.........

We couldn't do our job without you and your thankless dedication.  I can only imagine how hard it is to sit on the other end of the mic when those you care about go running off in the distance towards unknown threats, or hearing the small whimpers of a victim on the other end of the phone crying for help, knowing that there is nothing you can immediately do to help, but still have to offer calming and encouraging words.

Like an extension of us, we know that you care, and do the best job you can, and often go unnoticed, unnamed, and unrewarded for a hard job well done.

We out here really do appreciate all the hard work you guys and gals do.  Have a good week, and......

and on, and on, and on......

Thanks again, 


  1. Thanks Shamus! :)

    But yeah, if you're snippy, you get all runaways I can find. Bonus points if there's a language barrier.

    1. Haha. Oh, the joys of frequent runaways......and the language line!
