This week is National Telecommunicators Week and local police agencies are showing their gratitude for their dispatchers that play that vital role of communicator with those in an emergency.

 

Taylorville Police Chief Brian Hile says taking those calls is tough because that person doesn’t know what is going on and there’s nothing they can do over the phone to stop it.

 

 

Hile asks residents to thanks these people for their service if you see them in the community this week.

 

 

The Taylorville Police Department’s five dispatchers will be honored with a luncheon on Friday.
