A member of the Maysville Rescue Squad could face charges for the false report of a crime.
According to a Commerce Police Department incident report, an officer was dispatched to a King Road address by 911 due to a report of underage drinking. The property was actually not in the city, so a Jackson County deputy was dispatched.
When the officers found no evidence, the Commerce officer called 911 and asked who had made the report. He was told that the caller did not identify himself, and the officer did not recognize the voice.
However, according to the incident report, officials were able to trace the call to a member of the Maysville Rescue Squad.
The officer noted that other false calls have come in from the same person in the past, including one May 27 and another July 11, 2008.
The report said the officer requested a recording of the latest call, but there was no indication of whether the officer intended to pursue the matter.
I'm confused here...someone help me out please...Okay, so when the Commerce officer found out the property was not in the Commerce City limits & had Jackson County dispatched there, and Jackson County found no evidence of a crime, why did the Commerce police officer call 911 to inquire about who made the call? I mean, since it turned out to be not in the city limits, shouldn't the hands of any & all Commerce officers be washed of it...or in a situation like this does it not matter, or they sometimes work together when needed?
Also, it says that "the officer did not recognize the voice"...Okay, what officer? Who answers the 911 calls? When you call 911, is it police officers who you are talking to?
