ITEMS OF INTEREST:
There were a large number of 9-1-1 hang-ups received at the Regional Communications Center during the past week, which is where calls for the Sheriff’s Office are dispatched. We would like to remind callers that it is important to speak to a dispatcher once a call has been placed to 9-1-1. Even if the situation has changed, the dispatcher still needs to speak to a person at the end of the calling line.
The Sheriff’s Office also stresses the importance of teaching children when and how to call 9-1-1.
The Sheriff’s Office received and responded to 105 calls for service this week.
