They perform emergency and routine dispatch operations for all emergency response agencies including Paris Police, Paris Fire, County Volunteer Fire, EMS, Rescue Squad, and the Henry County Sheriffs Office. The 911 Telecommunicators are required to take extensive training, to be certified based on local, state and federal guidelines.

Each year, the second full week of April is dedicated to the men and women who serve as public safety telecommunicators. The Paris Police wish to honor and recognize the hard work and dedication exhibited by our STAFF of 911 call-takers. The City of Paris, Paris Police Department and Henry County 911, has a tradition of providing the highest quality of service because of the dedicated women and men in our Dispatch Center. This is as a direct result of the selection process for these important positions, the training model we use, and the commitment to quality and professionalism. These highly trained professionals provide support to police, fire, and ambulance and rescue services throughout Paris and Henry County; and are a lifeline to every First Responder on the road. Our emergency communications dispatchers work countless hours around the clock, to help keep all people in Henry County safe and connected to public safety services.
