The Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office is excited to be celebrating National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week from April 8 to 14.
The Arapahoe County 9-1-1 Communications Center has about 30 staff members who work in the state-of-the-art Communications Center and provide an essential service to the community. In 2017, they answered more than 327,500 phone calls, including more than 76,000 9-1-1 calls. Their role in the sheriff’s office is to receive and process those hundreds of thousands of calls to get help to callers as quickly as possible. They are experts in prioritizing emergencies, coordinating resources and providing support to responding field personnel.
During National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week, the sheriff’s office hopes everyone will take the time to learn more about the Communications Center by visiting their page on its website at arapahoegov.com/915/Communications-Section.
