Unsung heroes honored this week


ODESSA, Texas (Nexstar)- Law enforcement agencies across the nation are celebrating some unsung heroes this week.

From dispatching the police, fire department, or ambulance, to waking callers through life saving CPR techniques, they are the first line of defense when you call 911. And all dispatchers and telecommunicators are being honored during National Public Safety Telecommunications Week.

The team at the Odessa Police Department wants the community to know, they are there for them 24-7.

“It’s something that we all show up every day to do, I mean it is our job but it’s also having a passion for the community and helping save lives,” said Letita Chavez, Odessa dispatcher.
