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.

LOL - that will sure get your attention

re: "sleepy dispatcher"

We had one that liked to sleep on the midnight shift...every once in a while one of us would find a nice deserted spot, turn on our siren and scream into the radio:

"[car #] 10-80 !!!!," create fake statict noise and then cut transmission...

...while the rest of the shift watched this dude scramble from a dead sleep and try to contact the car involved in the "chase"
