KSP celebrates National Telecommunication Week

By  | 

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- It's National Telecommunication Week, and WBKO had the chance to spend time with Kentucky State Police emergency dispatchers to see just how hectic their job can get.

KSP say any given moment there are about four dispatchers on duty, responsible for ensuring that every single call is answered and appropriately responded to.

Trooper B.J. Eaton said when an officer is out in the field, the dispatchers are the unseen first responders when things get hectic.

"There's no way that we could do what we needed to do without our telecommunicators. They not only help those people on the other end of the line, but they get information that keeps us safe. When I'm going to a call they have found out everything that they need to know, possible that they can get, to help me know what I'm going into."

The Warren County Sheriff's Department, Bowling Green Police Department and The Medical Center EMS also have emergency dispatch operations in Warren County.
