911 Dispatch  


  911 -- what is the latest ... your guess as good as mine.

Ok I have to admit they have changed this so many times I have no clue anymore what the latest is --- if you're reading this and you know - help me out . We used to call  911 just for emergencies.  Then,  they moved the dispatch up to the county.   As of late 2011, Chief Kelly announced that 911 is the number to call whenever you need dispatch - emergency or not.  And he told people who wanted, for instance, to  report a problem or ask a question about a solicitor to call 911 .  That is certainly not what we originally thought of as what 911 is for.

     I recently had a situation where I did want an officer to show up, but where no emergency was involved.  It was difficult to push the buttons after so many years of training not to use 911 except for dire emergencies .  I apologized on the phone & made sure it was OK and they assured me that yes, anytime you need an officer to be sent  911 is the correct number .   That doesn't feel right . 
  
       In addition, to ask people who would like to have an officer look into a solicitor in the neighborhood should not require having an officer sent to your home .  Some people may not care to "entertain" a visit - and why should they have to, in order to let the police know they would like a solicitor checked out? 

        As of this writing  I have not heard otherwise - so it's 911 for a car to be dispatched anywhere - emergency or not. 

    Someone has also alerted me that there  may not be any permanent record of calls made to the regular police station number. So with 911 there will be a record of the calls made .  If you want a record otherwise of your contact with police, you might want to follow ip your conmversation with an email or letter.
