National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week Recognizes Sheriff’s Department Dispatchers

Jana Manning

This week we are recognizing emergency services dispatchers during National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week.

WKVI’s Anita Goodan stopped at the Starke County Sheriff’s Department and had the chance to speak to dispatcher, Jana Manning who has been at the Sheriff’s Department for 23 years.

“I take all emergency and non emergency calls for all law enforcement, EMS and fire departments in Starke County,” said Manning. “I enjoy helping people. I like when a family member comes up and says, ‘Thank you – you’ve really helped me’.”

Tomorrow we’ll hear from Sue Fox, the Chief Dispatcher in Pulaski County and Pulaski County Sheriff, Michael Gayer.
