    60 seconds away on a 911 call

    And until BSO gets rid of the seriously dangerous EPD and EFD sooner than later someone is going to end up dead over wanting an Accreditation that is BS and cost hundreds of thousands of wasted tax payer dollars...
    Shelve it and send it back we hate it on the road, dispatch hates it and its entirely a waste of time with the public.

    In all my years of wearing a headset and a red shirt for BSO, I've never heard anyone attempt to argue that someone actually has to be shot or you can hear the shots over the phone in order to classify it as a 33. The above caller's description of the event ("something shot through the back window", "hit the front windshield", "hot metal piece still inside the car", "possibly a bullet") reasonably indicates that there may have been a shooting. I don't know which agency you worked for, but last time I checked BSO SOP (yes, I am aware that the event was CSPD and their SOP may be different), it said that if a call can be classified as two different types, choose the type that has the higher priority. 13I, even with a raised priority, is asking for the exact kind of trouble (and negative attention) the calltaker found themself in.

    What I HAVE seen in all my years of wearing a headset for BSO were fellow dispatchers on countless occasions falling for a trap by going against that black-and-white print (which is also there to save them, not just jeopardize their career) to try to save some sort of face from other dispatchers and/or field units who maybe won't want to handle the call as it has been classified and/or prioritized...that's their problem.

    This is probably the same trap that the CSPD calltaker fell for: Worrying about their coworkers' opinions and feelings (who don't pay the calltaker's bills) while forgetting what actually matters: the policy written by those who DO pay the calltaker's bills.

    Yup! Too bad someone from BSO convinced the Police Chiefs, in their secret squirrel meeting when they voted on it a few weeks ago, to continue using it for a few more months. #thanksalot
