A Special ‘Three Tone’ Salute for Fallen Cencom Dispatcher

John Taylor

Today at about 3:20 p.m., Kitsap County’s 911 dispatchers broadcast something out of the ordinary that caught our attention.

Dispatchers at Central Communications put out three tones — normally the beeps reserved to alert cops to an in-progress crime — in honor of John Jeremy Taylor, 25.

It was a fitting tribute to a man who I can say was very good at his job.

Taylor worked as a dispatcher and supervisor at CenCom. I had the privilege of meeting him several times on the job and off it. Aside from being a stellar dispatcher, he was a charming and friendly guy who, as his obituary said, “spent his whole life helping and serving others.”
