Heard this call several years back.

The dispatcher said several people were reporting they saw a topless bloody woman carrying a knife in the cemetery.

Several officers responded very quickly to the cemetery and setup a perimeter.

Even though the officers arrived quickly and checked the area. The topless bloody woman carrying a knife in the cemetery was never located.

Dispatcher to medic unit...."the patient is asking the caller to stop doing CPR on them. Your discretion on response".
You can't make this stuff up.

I guess one of the city units was undercover with civilian plates. Apparantly county was suspicious before doing a traffic stop

County Sheriff - Can I get rolling data on XYZ1234

Dispatch - Car is a black 2020 Ford Explorer registered to the xxx City Police Department

DOH!

Highways Dept snow plows:

Driver: (sounding frustrated) "I'm heading back to the yard. This frigging truck keeps going into neutral every second, and I'm about to light it on fire."

A couple minutes later, another driver complained about his truck.

Third driver: "Put them together and light them both on fire, one match."

More general funny stuff are the snow removal crews at the airport. "Hey John, look out for that plane coming up behind you!!" "14 your broom isn't touching the ground." "I told you guys to move that snow to the south!"

Dispatch: Paul 7, xxxx Leland Ave; this is a recall for a loud music complaint.

Officer: Copy. Figured we'd be getting another call about this. Homeowner was being belligerent and said he was going to turn the music right back up after I left last time.

Dispatch: 10-4. Should I get you another unit?

Officer: Negative, I can handle him.

You go Mr. Police officer sir! :D

JUST HEARD: On the Local TG for the VAMC ER... Admissions Nurse: "Did you say he took Acid Water mixed with Cocaine Medic?" Ambulance en route: "That is correct VA, he states he took acid water mixed with cocaine." Nurse: "Does he know where we could get some of that? Kidding, I'm just kidding, whoever is listening, I am just kidding!" Ambulance: "HAHAHA! We will see you in just a few"

SPIRITS/GHOSTS IN A HOUSE
Withheld location - Salisbury, MD
-Wicomico County Sheriff’s Deputies have been dispatched to the location in reference to a lady that has spirits in her house. She originally had a knife to fight off the spirits but they've convinced her into placing the knife on a table. Deputies are enroute to look for the spirits???
Update: Wicomico County Deputies have cleared the call and advised that the spirits "have been eradicated"

The Sheriff's deputies probably had to pour the spirits out...

Last night right after 11 pm, Everything gets quiet in and around the house, everyone had gone to sleep, I heard a loud THUMP! I went to the window to see if I could see anything that would have made a loud thump, didn't see anything. Sat back down at my radios and computer and the local sheriff's frequency came on the scanner.
B-xx to dispatch.
Go ahead, B-xx...
Dispatch, start me a CAD, I just hit a deer on the 100 block of X X Road.
(Thats less than 1/2 mile from my house)

Dispatch: Paul 2, xxxx 175th. 9-1-1 hang-up. Caller was whispering that someone has broken into his home and is threatening to kill him. Caller stated that he is hiding in a closet.

Officer: 10-4. Central, could you check to see if we've received calls from this address before? It sounds familiar.

Dispatch (after a few seconds pause): Affirmative. We received one call last night, two the night before and two calls last week. Same number, same address.

Officer: 10-4. That's what I thought. Sounds like he's off his meds again. I'm enroute.

:eek:
