For those of you who don’t also keep up with the Political Buzz blog, but here’s something I think has some bleed-over.

Lately, I’ve been blogging and writing about a recent performance audit of Pierce County’s major 911 center, known as LESA (Law Enforcement Support Agency).

I’ll soon be coming out with a story that looks closer at the job itself and the impact of the some of the funding and staffing issues. But I also wanted to show, or at least hint at, what it’s like for the men and women answering the constantly ringing 911 calls. The first video contains a difficult emotional situation (ultimately no one was hurt) the second is more comedic.
