Denver Disciplines Emergency Call Operators

February 29, 2012

Denver authorities have disciplined 17 employees and fired one over delays in responding to calls.

Denver 911 emergency operations manager Ernest Franssen tells to KMGH-TV there was no excuse for the delay responding to the break-in. The department says it changed procedures in January to improve service.
