Pikeville Dispatchers Are Heroes

Dispatchers at the Pikeville Public Safety Office, as well as many other local and nationwide dispatchers, are being recognized this week as part of National Public Safety Telecommunicator’s Week.9-1-1 Public Safety Director Paul Maynard stressed the importance of dispatchers in the community and the duties they have to protect and serve.“They’re not seen. People hear them, but they don’t see them,” said Maynard. “People don’t realize the importance of what they [dispatchers] do. They’re the first line of defense.”
