Chatham-Kent Police responded to 17 hang up/accidental 911 calls in the last 24 hour period.The Chatham-Kent Police Service would like to remind everyone that if you accidentally dial 911, please stay on the line. Should you hang up, the call taker will assume it’s an emergency and dispatch police. 911 Hang-up calls consume considerable resources, therefore police are asking all cell phone users to ‘lock it before you pocket.’ If non-emergency services are required please call 519-436-6600 ext 222 for Headquarters front desk staff or 519-352-1234.
