"National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week"


April 11, 2022

The second week of April is recognized each year as “National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week”, bringing well-deserved attention and recognition to the public safety dispatchers who are an invaluable, vital part of the public safety team.

During this week (April 10-26, 2022), we formally acknowledge them for their contributions and sacrifices as Public Safety Dispatchers. These very unique people, that Beltrami County Sheriff’s Office is honored to have, are the voices that assure rapid response by police, fire, and medical personnel in the midst of all emergencies and are often overlooked for the critical role that they play in coordinating first response and lifesaving efforts. They are the lifeline that ensures the continued protection of the front line first responders and the citizens they serve. These individuals work around the clock, holidays, birthdays, often-missing family and school functions and immediately jump into action to help whenever they are called upon.

The Beltrami County Sheriff’s Office rely and greatly appreciate our Dispatchers. Dispatching is a highly difficult and incredibly important job constantly changing and growing.

Beltrami County dispatchers respond quickly to unexpected emergencies, every single day at any time of the day. They play a crucial role in the lifesaving process, providing an invaluable connection between emergency services and the people who need them. We are very thankful for the men and women who shoulder this responsibility and we recognize the invaluable assistance that they provide to our community.

Between the thin red line and the thin blue line, lies the thinnest gold line.

This gold line represents those who rarely are seen but mostly heard.

The calm voice in the dark night.

The golden glue that holds it all together.


Chief Deputy Jarrett Walton
