9-1-1 Hang-ups

 

Belleville, ONT – Police responded to six 9-1-1 hang-up calls in the previous 24 hours.  Officers and city police dispatch were able to either communicate by telephone or attend the location the calls originated from to find out they were pocket-dials, made in error (calling for 411 assistance, but dialing 911), and one where a female was dialing to Europe, but became engaged in the 9-1-1 process instead.  None of the calls proved to be first-responder / rescue related, and nobody was found to be in any distress.
