Re: How do police handle 911 nuisance calls?
I'd like to see a police visit whenever 9-1-1 is called and then the caller hangs up. In many jurisdictions the dispatcher calls back to see if everything's okay, which can create a greater problem if the caller were a frightened child witnessing or in the middle of some family violence, or an abducted child who is placing the call while the abductor is in the bathroom or asleep. That 9-1-1 call-back could get the child killed, while a visit from the police to the recorded address could save a life.
