Bossier Parish dispatchers hear it all!

National Public Telecommunicators Week, April 9 - April 14.

Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington and the men and women of Bossier sheriff’s Office are honoring the hard work of the office’s dispatchers during National Public Telecommunicators Week, which runs from April 9 - April 14.

“Each Shift is different,” said Lt. Amy Pope, BSO’s Dispatch Director. “The calls range from a criminally related call to somebody calling in from another city to go check on a grandparent they can’t get in touch with.”

It doesn’t matter the weather our dis patchers are always on duty.

"Our dispatchers work around the clock, very seldom seen, but always heard as they keep our community safe," said Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington. "They typically work from a small office, but their reach is for miles as they not only help our deputies, but they calm our residents in times of emergencies."

To help celebrate National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week four members of Shreveport Police Department’s dispatch team visited Bossier Sheriff’s Office dispatchers to meet and greet the day crew working today.

Here’s an interesting thought. Why is it that Louisiana and neighboring state Mississippi are always on the bottom of every national ranking involving virtually every aspect of a state’s quality of life? Yet casino gambling is widespread throughout both states at a level not found any place else in America outside of Las Vegas.

On April 28, citizens of Shreveport face a choice: Fund basic city services or plunge the city into fiscal chaos. It would have been inconceivable 20 years ago that routine tax renewals to fund the fire and police departments and other basic city services would not have the collective support of the city’s business, civic and political leadership.
