911 hang up calls

The Chatham-Kent Police continue to receive 911 hang-up calls.

Yesterday, our Emergency Communications Centre received 22 hang up calls.

“We would like to remind everyone that if you accidentally dial 911, please stay on the line,” police officials say.

“Should you hang up, the call taker will assume it’s an emergency and dispatch police. 911 hang-up calls consume considerable resources, therefore all cell phone users are asked to lock their phone to prevent accidental calls.”
