Placeholder Image

    Two Bulloch County 911 operators volunteered to man calls today during the funeral of Bryan County sheriff’s Deputy Robert “Bobby” Crapse, killed Friday in a head-on collision with a driver traveling in the wrong direction on Interstate 95.
    Bulloch County Public Safety Director Ted Wynn said operators Michelle Miller and Karen Pachoula will travel to the Bryan County 911 Center to dispatch calls so Bryan County 911 personnel can attend Crapse’s funeral.
    “Bryan County has the same type of CAD (computer aided dispatching) system we do,” he said. “It’s nice when you have common systems and can help out this way.”
    Pachoula and Miller both volunteered their services as a gesture of support for their fellow law enforcement officers, Wynn said.
    “I’m very proud of them for volunteering to do this. They’re the ones who deserve the recognition,” he said.
    Wynn also offered condolences.
    “We’re deeply saddened by the loss, and any way we can help, we’re always glad to do so.”
    The funeral service for Crapse will be at 2 p.m.  today in the First Baptist Church of Pembroke. Burial will follow in Northside Cemetery. Crapse will be promoted to sergeant before the funeral, Bryan County Sheriff Clyde Smith has said.
