4/12/2020 - National Dispatcher Appreciation Week: April 12-18


With all the current issues impacting the nation, state and towns, the Canton Police Department is honored to be able to recognize the Town of Canton’s Public Safety Dispatchers as part of this week’s National Public Safety Telecommunicator Week. The four full-time and four part-time dispatchers are the gatekeepers to the emergency services-police, fire, and medical-that are provided for the Town of Canton. Before and behind the scenes of every response by a police officer, firemen or ambulance/EMT technician who responds to an emergency call, is the original recipient of the call for service-Canton’s Public Safety Dispatcher. 

On a daily basis, these Canton’s dispatchers demonstrate an exemplary level of poise, professionalism and triage to ensure the proper level of an emergency response is made. Countless life-saving and dangerous incidents are properly managed from the onset due to the dispatchers’ ability to ascertain the true nature and scope of the emergency. 

During this week, I ask the community to keep in mind and thank the Canton Public Safety Dispatchers. Their work is exemplary, their commitment to public safety and security is unconditional and there are deserving of this small token of appreciation.

Canton is well-served by the silent heroism they perform every time an emergency arises.
