Pop Up Pizza

Dispatcher: Ma’am, you’ve reached 911

Dispatcher: Ummm…. I’m sorry, you know you’ve called 911 right?

Caller: Yeah, do you know how long it will be?

Dispatcher: Ok, Ma’am, is everything ok over there? Do you have an emergency?

Caller: Yes, I do.

Dispatcher: And you can’t talk about it because there’s someone in the room with you?

YCC Hope

“The officer arrives and finds a couple, female was kind of banged up, and boyfriend was drunk,” Keith explained. “Officer arrests him after she explains that the boyfriend had been beating her for a while.”


It's been a decade since that phone call but it stuck with him. Keith went on to become an attorney and never heard what happened to the woman who called.

“This is a part of the job most 911 dispatchers find frustrating. Beyond the immediate resolution – arrest, hospitalization, etc. – we rarely hear what happens to the people who call,” Keith said.
