Dispatchers Honored for Service to Local Communities


This week we’re recognizing 911 dispatchers for National Public Safety Telecommunicator Week.

As a way to highlight all that dispatchers do for our community, Bentonville Mayor Stephanie Orman presented a proclamation to the Bentonville Police Department Monday.   

“We just are very thankful for all of our personnel who work in our dispatch center and making sure we are taking care of our emergency calls,” Orman said.

Orman said the dispatch center handled over 110,000 emergency and non-emergency calls last year, and initiated over 73,000 police and fire calls.
