Post 16 National Public Safety Telecommunications Week Honors "Heroes Behind The Headsets"

Date of News Release: 04/12/2013

(Henderson, KY) -- April 14-20 is National Public Safety Telecommunications Week. During this time, Kentucky State Police dispatchers at Post 16 in Henderson will join more than 200,000 fellow communicators throughout the United States being recognized for their long hours and dedication to public safety.

Post 16 currently has eight telecommunicators on staff who handle calls in Henderson, Union, Daviess, McLean, Ohio and Hancock counties. Last year, Post 16 responded to 35,083 calls.

"Throughout the state, KSP telecommunicators are the 'heroes behind the headsets' who provide a lifeline to both citizens in need and officers in the field," says KSP Commissioner Rodney Brewer. "They serve as an unseen, but vital link in keeping law enforcement officers and the public safe at all times of the day or night. They work odd hours, make personal sacrifices, handle a huge amount of stress and are ready and willing to help at a moment's notice. They deserve a well-earned salute for their dedication and service to the Kentucky State Police and the citizens of the Commonwealth."

KSP employs 185 telecommunicators at its 16 posts throughout the state. In 2012, they handled a total of 555,123 calls.

The Post 16 telecommunications team includes: Debbie Scott, Henderson (supervisor); Bridget Stone, Owensboro (shift supervisor); Alexis McGee, Evansville, IN; Belinda Littrell, Henderson; Peggy Zachritz, Evansville, IN; Blake Smith, Owensboro; April Taylor, Sebree and Courtney Travis of Morganfield.
