Sheriff praises dispatchers for unfaltering duty

By Marc Robertson

La Salle County Sheriff Miguel Rodriguez visited the emergency dispatch office on Thursday, April 12, to present the staff with gifts in celebration of National Telecommunicators’ Week, an event that shines a light on those who maintain vital communications around the clock to receive emergency calls on the 911 line and to send law enforcement officers, medics and firefighters to locations around the county where they are needed.

“These staff members play a vital role in the county, and in many ways they are at the front line of any emergency and ready to respond to any call,” the sheriff said. “All law enforcement officers, emergency medical and fire services in this county owe a debt of gratitude to these dispatchers who are often unknown to the general public. The work they do is critical to the smooth operation of this county’s services to the people.”
