True story from many years ago in a neighboring jurisdiction...

call into Sheriff's Dept. advising to send deputies to caller's house as he had just shot and killed a burglar. Call-taker, who happened to be a deputy known to the caller, asked X, is this guy in your house?

To which X replied, "how long before the deputies get here?"

True story from archy, from several years back:

Upon calling the local 911 number to report an armed robbery no longer in progress at the business I managed, the sleepy-voiced dispatcher enquired if I wished my call directed to the local police, county sheriff or fire department. I told him I'd talk with the local cops, but he might want to give the county coroner a call and send him round, too.

That woke the lad right up.
