KSP: Be the voice you hear when you call 911

BOWLING GREEN, Ky.- Kentucky State Police and Governor Andy Beshear are urging the public to consider a job in telecommunications.

Telecommunicators are one of the most essential roles in law enforcement’s ability to respond to emergencies and critical needs. 

Right now, there are 45 full time and part time positions open at 14 different post locations around the state. 

The most important and critical part of the job is calming the other voice at the end of the line when someone calls 911. 

“You get to have that first hand contact with people who are truly in need. And if there’s someone out there who wants to have an impact on their community, and wants to help their community, I can’t think of a better way than to be a telecommunicator. To be able to talk to those people that are calling in for help and to be able to answer the phone, and give them the service that they need,” said KSP Trooper Daniel Priddy.
