The Fort Walton Beach Police Department (FWBPD) will be honoring 2024 National Public Safety Telecommunicator Week (April 14 through April 20). The department has created a special “Adopt a Dispatcher” event and invited citizens of Fort Walton Beach to demonstrate their appreciation during this special week.

Police Dispatchers are generally the first to speak with a citizen during an emergency while doing so with extreme calmness and sensitivity. These unsung heroes are critical to ensuring appropriate and accurate information is gathered and transmitted according to the situation to responding police officers.

Every dispatcher has been adopted according to the FWBPD.  dispatcher, your appreciation can take place in innumerable forms: a thank-you card, a child’s creative art piece, the gift of a meal at their favorite restaurant, a home-baked cake, or any of a million ways to thank your adopted dispatcher.

All dispatchers at Fort Walton Beach Police Department have been adopted. 100.3 KROCK’s B-Team is excited about participating. Discussions are already underway as to the various ways to honor their dispatcher adoptee during National Public Safety Telecommunicator Week.

Let us know if you have joined the effort to honor FWBPD’s dispatchers and what fun things you are doing to show your appreciation for their work. They take the calls we hope we never have to make. Police dispatchers are compassionate angels in the darkness of traumatic situations.
