PHOENIX — Emergency dispatchers in Phoenix who handle 911 calls will have a place to decompress.
The Phoenix Police Department on Tuesday will dedicate a new "quiet room" for 911 operators.
Police Chief Jeri Williams and Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego will be on hand for the ceremony.
A local Rotary Club came up with the idea as a way to show appreciation to police communications operators.
Officials say the job of emergency dispatcher can sometimes take an emotional toll. The quiet room will allow them a place to rest or take a few moments for themselves.
