Each year, the second week of April is dedicated to men and women who serve as public safety telecommunicators. El Paso County participated in this national event with County Commissioners signing a Resolution that declares April 12th through April 18th, 2015 “Public Safety Telecommunicators Week”. This important and crucial role is played by telecommunicators, dispatchers, communication operators, and radio control personnel who utilize telephones, radios, computers and technical skills to provide support for law enforcement and fire services throughout the city and county. The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office Communications Section is a 24-hour, 7 days-a-week operation. It provides a service of radio communications, computer aided dispatch (CAD), and inquiries from TCIC/NCIC on wanted, missing, and stolen property to numerous agencies within El Paso County. The Communications Center provides radio service to numerous agencies such as law enforcement, volunteer fire departments, medical examiners, and courts of law. They are the unseen first responders that do many tasks at once and their hard work and dedication does not go unnoticed. All residents of El Paso are encouraged to extend their appreciation to public safety telecommunicators.
