Angelina Co. Sheriff's office to hire new dispatcher

ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

City of Lufkin gave the Angelina County Sheriff’s Office the green light to hire a new dispatcher.

Currently, Angelina County handles dispatch calls for three additional cities. Since taking on calls for the city of Hudson, Huntington, and Zavalla,Sheriff Greg Sanches said they have had an increase of calls.

The increase causes for more training, which means more money.

“It’s very costly, when you consider the towers and dispatchers, salaries and everything,” Sanches said. “So it saves them a lot of trouble in the end,”

This new agreement goes into effect January 1,2016.
