We already have the law in place. We should be using it.
FALSE “911” CALLS.—Whoever accesses the number “911” for the purpose of making a false alarm or complaint or reporting false information which could result in the emergency response of any public safety agency is guilty of a misdemeanor of the first degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082 or s. 775.083
The criminal process is unwieldy (because of all the procedural requirements) and seldom used because the system is designed for more serious crimes. As a result, few people are prosecuted and fewer people still hear of the the negative impact on the caller.
Do away with the criminal penalties and have a $100.00 charge applied to the next phone bill and the impact is immediate.
