Many 9-1-1 calls non-emergencies

It’s a number the Noelville OPP want to see reduced dramatically.  Up to the end of October, 81 percent of the 9-1-1 calls to the detachment were non-emergency.  The detachment commander says these calls are the result of pocket dialling where someone accidentally calls 9-1-1.   Acting Staff Sergeant Rick MacKay is asking people to take 9-1-1 off auto-dial.  He says it’s because it only takes a moment to hit the three numbers.  MacKay says constantly responding to non-emergency calls may one day make police late for a real crisis that results in tragedy because they weren’t there in time.
