    Sure, Iam all for the CYA in dispatching and on the streets but really what I was getting at is the LOSERS who actually call in this complete and utter waste of everyone time. Just look at what that A-hole caller made me do by posting it here

    It's not too common from what I understand, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was a daily occurance.

    The city of Chicago started a 311 information line for bogus calls. I don't think the people have figured out 311 yet & still dial 911.

    Don't people know how to look up the non-emergency numbers these days? I think it's the first page in the phone book for cryin out loud.

    YEs true they do have to dispatch any call. BUT what is wrong with people that they have NO life that they call An EMERGENCY line for a bumper sticker. My dispatchers cant even hold onto a call if its near shift change, in the city calls would be held for the next shift unless its a priority call , a barking DOG complaint shoudl NOT result in 30 minutes overtime.... Nor should a bumper sticker even make it on the air, though it was funny..

    I think it's time to start tracing numbers and handing out $500 fines for calling 911 for bogus reasons.
