17 9-1-1 Dispatchers Give An Inside Look Into A Day On The Job
Being in a situation where calling 9-1-1 is necessary is a fear we all can relate to. Nobody wants to be in danger or have a loved one in danger. When emergency strikes, it's good to know that there will be a dispatcher on the other end of our call that will send us help. Police dispatchers are our messengers in times of emergency. It's not an easy job, and it's certainly not your normal 9-5 office gig. These confessions reveal what it's really like to be on the other end of some of the most horrific calls.

Each choice they make can have life-changing consequences.

I'm a police dispatcher and I'm about to burn out. Sent one of my officers out today on a child abuse call. When the officer down call came through it almost killed me. I sent him out there...

Sounds like a scene from a movie.

I am dispatcher. Officers were sent out to a party because a neighbor had a noise complaint. 
After they cleared up we got a call that the neighbor saw the responding officer dabbing at the party.

Too real.

I've been working as a 911 dispatcher for almost a year now, and today I had the hardest call ever. My dad was in anaphylactic shock. Nothing can top how scared I was taking that call.


I'm a police dispatcher and I've heard so much messed up stuff that I've become desensitized to violence. It scares me to death.

Some dispatchers' work never leaves them.

I am a 911 dispatcher and the screams and cries never go away.

Sounds like times up.

I've been a 911 dispatcher for almost 20 years. I'm so burned-out. I don't care about 99% of the people who call. I'm too close to retirement to quit.
