Friday marks the end of National Telecommunicators Week. Marcia Slycord, Communications Director for the Pella Police Department says it’s important to recognize the dispatchers working the phones for our emergency management services, as they’re the ones who work behind the scenes to give officers and other responders information in real time in order to resolve those emergency calls as quickly and safely as possible.
