Two groups are key to public safety in College Station and this week they're being recognized for their hard work and dedication to the job.

College Station Police Lt. Steve Brock says 15 regular volunteers, along with interns, provide invaluable help for officers on a regular basis.

Last year those volunteers and interns provided the College Station Police Department with 5700+ hours of manpower and saved the city more than $127,000.

The city is also recognizing National Animal Care and Control Appreciation Week.

This week of appreciation is designed to give recognition to the hard-working men and women of Animal Care and Control who devote huge amounts of personal time and resources while they serve the public.

ACOs work diligently to keep our community and animal population safe.

April 10th also marks National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week.

Each year, the second full week of April is dedicated to the men and women who serve as public safety telecommunicators.

It was first conceived in 1981 and by the early 1990’s it was recognized by Congress as National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week.

This designation recognizes our unsung heroes on the other end of the line.

They are our true 1st First Responders.

College Station Police Department is currently authorized
