Rock County Releases New, Hip PSA

News

Rock County dispatchers bust a move to highlight a growing problem.

The Lip Dubbers mouthed Arianna Grande’s hit song, “Problem.”  It’s to draw attention to the problem of 911 mis-dials and hang-ups.  They want people to stay on the line, even if they accidentally dialed 911, or take batteries out of old cell phones, and lock screens so buttons aren’t easily hit.

Last year, the communications center says that Rock County law enforcement spent more than 2,300 hours investigating abandoned 911 calls to make sure they weren’t true emergencies.
