The Pella Police Department will be one of the thousands of law enforcement agencies nationwide that will take the time to recognize the first line of emergency communication during National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week, which runs through Saturday.

Marcia Slycord, Pella Police Department Communications Supervisor says sometimes the role of dispatch in an emergency situation is forgotten, but says their ability to receive and process emergency information is of utmost importance in assisting the public in emergency events.
