Northwest Central Dispatch System (NWCDS) Celebrates National Public Safety Telecommunicator Week

TC Week 2018

We are excited to wish everyone a happy National Public Safety Telecommunicator Week (NPSTW). Initially conceived in 1981 by Patricia Anderson of the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office in California, NPSTW was created to raise public awareness of the hard work and dedication of public safety Telecommunicators. In October 1991, APCO International successfully lobbied to receive a formal proclamation by Congress, which was signed by President Bill Clinton, designating the second full week in April as National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week. We hope you enjoy the week.
