Another national week being celebrated is telecommunicators week.

This week, places like the Putnam County Sheriff's Office, will be celebrating its 911 dispatchers.  911 coordinator Brad Brubaker said dispatchers deserved to be recognized like the rest of law enforcement. He said often, media see the first responders at a crime scene and won't see the dispatchers. Brubaker personally bought his dispatchers 911 key chains and wrote them thank you notes. He and the sheriff also provided some sweet treats for the dispatchers who have served as little as two weeks to 22 years.

Brubaker said the entire department has been getting some appreciation from the community, who have brought in baked goods and kids have been bringing them signs.
