The Pacific County Sheriff’s Office, as well as all other law enforcement and Fire agencies within the county rely on PACCOM, the (Pacific County Consolidated 911 and Dispatch Center) located in South Bend, for 911 and dispatching services. “These telecommunicators play an invaluable role in our ability to assist community members and are steadfast in times of crisis,” said Sheriff Scott Johnson. “Telecommunicators have a highly stressful yet important job. The men and women at PACCOM are an invaluable part of our public safety team. We appreciate the work that they do each and every day.”
PACCOM telecommunicators respond swiftly to unexpected emergencies, every day. They carry out crucial roles in the lifesaving process while providing important connections between emergency services and the people who need them. The Pacific County Sheriff’s Office is thankful for the men and women who tackle this responsibility and we recognize the invaluable efforts that they provide us in protecting our community.
Telecommunicators Week began in California in 1981 and quickly grew to become a national week of recognition. Just ten years later, Congress officially designated the second week of each April as a time to remember the critical role that dispatchers play in keeping us all safe.
