911 (false) calls bring unwaranted invasion of privacy-how common is this?
"5 am, 2 state policemen insist on entering & searching my

home due to a '911 call placed from this phone number'-I am

home alone and preparing for work but they, apparently, must

look for the bloody bodies--They were polite & one said

'this has happened 9 times in the last month'--I, of course,

had placed no such call" (from a friend)


the area they patrol is sparsely populated, so, for 'it to

have happened' NINE TIMES WITHIN ONE MONTH seems very weird

to me.


Are there others here who have experienced this or may know

a reason--mechanical, electronic or otherwise--how/why false

911 calls can occur?


After watching some of ag alberto gonzales 'testimony' on

c-span about change in wiretapping--got to thinking maybe

all lines are susceptible to some sort of interference

whenever it proves convenient...(?)

Are you sure that no one else was in your home that could have placed the call?

Re: 911 (false) calls bring unwaranted invasion of privacy-how common is this?
this was a land line not a cell phone--

wondering if foia may apply so as to review how this may have

happened...


this article is from a couple of years ago & refers to cells

but perhaps sheds some light

Order on 911 FOIA Requests

In Order FCC 05-34, the Commission granted in part and denied in part the Wireless Consumer Alliance ("WCA") applications seeking review of decisions of the Enforcement Bureau ("EB") denying in part the WCA's Freedom of Information Act ("FOIA") request for records relating to the ability of cellular telephone users to complete 911 emergency calls. The Order also granted in part and denied in part an application for review filed by LG Electronics USA, Inc. ("LG"), and denied applications for review filed by Nokia and Motorola of the EB's decision to deny in part their requests for confidential treatment of records submitted in connection with investigations of compliance with Commission regulations.

The rules require analog cellular telephones to have a separate capability to process 911 emergency calls. Since the adoption of those rules, the Commission has conducted various investigations relating to the compliance of cell phone manufacturers with the rules. Three of the investigations have resulted in consent decrees with cell phone manufacturers, and five investigations are pending, awaiting the outcome of a pending declaratory order proceeding. The WCA filed a FOIA request seeking copies of documents relating to the compliance of cell phone manufacturers with the Commission 911 call processing requirements, the Commission's interpretation of these requirements, and internal and external communications concerning compliance and interpretation. The WCA contended that the records it requested are not subject to FOIA Exemption 5 and, in particular, to the deliberative process privilege.

please see my original post--this person lives alone--no one

else was in the house, either--some problems with the phone

line cause an occasional--and more ofeten, recently--dropped

calls or disconnection

cordless landline may be part of the problem although the line

coming into the house is messed up too--telephone line repair

Instead of jumping to conclusions, simply call and ask what the standard procedure is for a disconnect on a 911 call. MANY precincts now have in place a "rule" to request (sometimes enforce) entry into a business or residence in case of a 911 disconnect. Google this... you'll find many times when the responders haven't done so - bad things could have been avoided or have been discovered much earlier.

Currently working in the "911" business, I know first hand.

I had a phone company man install a phone and did some work from the box outside the house

A few minutes latter, an officer came racing down the driveway, wide eyed and excited

I was thinking whaaa..

Turned out that the installation somehow triggered a 911 call

The phoneman was at a lose for an explanation
