911 Dispatchers attend a "Telecommunicators Course"
Howard County Dispatchers, Shantara Green and Misty Young attended a three day 911 Telecommunicators Course at the Texarkana Police Department March 5th - 7th. The training was hosted by the Arkansas Law Enforcement Training Academy. Telecommunicators are trained in telephone communication techniques, call classification, radio techniques, persons with disabilities and other responsibilities of the highly stressful career choice. At this time the training is not required, but the 911 dispatchers in Howard County are volunteering to attend so that they may better serve the citizens of Howard County.
