☎TELECOMMUNICATORS WEEK☎Meet Emily Lyda Acton. With three years of dispatch experience before her hire date with the Greenville County Sheriff's Office dispatch in April 2020, Emily was promoted to Communications Training Specialist in September 2022 and has served in that capacity ever since. Emily grew up around law enforcement and was well aware of the fast-paced work environment and skills needed for a 911 dispatcher. However, she was unaware of how rewarding and valuable this career was. "Every day we answer hundreds of calls, not knowing what kind of emergency is taking place. It could be anywhere from a misdial to someone having suicidal thoughts or a gunshot victim. No matter what crisis the caller is going through, you are the first voice they hear. The voice that calms them down and reassures them that help is on the way. Your voice is also the first heard when a deputy has requested emergency assistance and you advise them you have everyone coming as fast as they can. Yes, some days you go home feeling defeated but the feeling of gratitude and honor immediately overcomes any doubtful thought during your next work shift. I couldn't imagine working in any other career. I love my job and I am so grateful for the coworkers who have become family at the Sheriff's Office". -Emily- ... See MoreSee Less

#ThisisGCSOSo this morning I stopped at Lidl and as I was leaving, a Greenville County Sheriff's Office deputy was following a vehicle with his lights on into the parking lot. The driver of the vehicle, an older gentleman, parked right next to me. The GCSO deputy parked behind me. I have to say that it was refreshing to see an officer show grace and compassion toward this older gentleman. Yes he was driving very slowly, not acknowledging the officer behind him, and not paying attention. The officer was very polite, gracious, kind and understanding. In today’s world where we see so much negativity on daily basis and on every corner, a lot of it directed at our law enforcement, it was beautiful to see this officer’s politeness and kindness. Great job officer, sorry I didn’t get your name! ... See MoreSee Less
