Calaveras County Sheriff's Department Tests New Program To Reduce Non-Emergency 9-1-1 Calls

This pilot public education campaign is important in light of new statewide 9-1-1 caller research that showed nearly 25 percent of all calls to the California 9-1-1 system are non-emergency calls.* "Our survey found that consumers make a variety of non-emergency calls ranging from calls about non-violent public disturbances and animal nuisances, to power outages and requests for directions," said William Anderson, Interim Manager of the California 9-1-1 Emergency Communications Branch. During the next few months, Calaveras County Sheriff's Department will be conducting local outreach to educate the public about the proper use of 9-1-1.
