After 43 years, Sergeant Dispatcher Irma Young from Marksville, LA retired from the only in-house dispatcher position. The Marksville City Police Department threw her a surprise retirement party
and honored her service to the community.
Let’s salute dispatchers everywhere. Let them know how grateful we are for their service, their compassion and ability to stay calm under the most stressful situations. Let’s thank them for being the lifeline to many victims and helping to keep our officers safe.
Thank you for your commitment to this lifesaving work.
