Dispatcher of the Year

Berrien County dispatcher Melissa Hensley holds her 911 Dispatcher of the Year award.

ST. JOSEPH — Two Berrien County 911 telecommunicators were honored for their service late last month during the Berrien County Board of Commissioners’ meeting.

Every year, 911 operators from the County Emergency Communication Centers are invited to anonymously nominate their peers for the 911 Dispatcher of the Year award. The nominations are then considered by the county’s 911 Advisory Committee.
