BROOKVILLE â€” The 911 dispatchers who field emergency calls are just as likely to experience symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as those on the front lines, a new study indicates.
The study, completed by Michelle Lilly, a psychology professor at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, Ill., and research associate Heather Pierce, analyzed surveys completed by 171 emergency dispatchers from 24 states, the Huffington Post reported.
BROOKVILLE â€” Tuesday, Brookville Borough Police Chief Ken Dworek reported to Brookville Borough Council about a senior scavenger hunt that had gone awry.
He said some members of the Brookville Jr.-Sr. High School senior class participated in a scavenger hunt that was not a school-sanctioned activity.
During the hunt, Dworek said some students became involved in criminal activity.
Dworek said license plates and hubcaps were stolen from vehicles, and lawn ornaments were smashed; some were valued up to $300.
