April 11 – 17, 2021 has been designated as a time to honor dispatchers across our nation.   Franklin County Sheriff Overton said today, “E911 Dispatchers are most often the first contact our residents have with the Office of the Sheriff during an emergency. Emergencies require a prompt response from law enforcement and/or public safety. They do their jobs with professionalism, compassion and understanding, helping residents who are having one of the worst days of their lives. Join with me in thanking our fine E911 Dispatchers as we honor them for a job well done.”

The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office says “Thank You” to all of our E911 team and to all dispatch personnel around our nation for a job well done.
