Coral Springs Communications Center Honored as Florida APCO Unit of the Year
The Coral Springs Police Department Communications Center has received the Florida Association of Public Safety Officials 2013 Unit of the Year! Many factors contributed to the Communications Center earning this award; one of the most important being that every single Communications Center member became certified through the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. There are only eight agencies statewide that have accomplished this. The Telecommunicators and Call Takers also made a significant contribution to reducing our residential burglary rate by 7.6% and vehicle burglary rate by 18% after the implementation of our Make a Call Make a Difference campaign.
The Coral Springs Police Department Communications Center is Nationally Accredited through the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, and our agency is honored to have received the prestigious recognition of APCO 2013 Unit of the Year.
The award will be presented at the opening ceremony of the State APCO conference, on October 28, 2013, in Tampa, Florida.
