The LAPD celebrated National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week – popularly known as National Dispatchers Week – April 10-14, honoring its dispatchers with ceremonies and honors.
In 1992, President George H. Bush established National Dispatchers’ Week to honor police dispatchers for providing vital emergency services to their community nationwide. The LAPD has been celebrating it ever since.
Honors for employees of the year and pins for service were distributed. Photos below picture the festivities at the Metro Communications Center.
