Toledo police dept urges callers to stop ‘tying up’ 911 lines to snitch on social distancing violators

May 20, 2020 | Frieda Powers

State and local government officials calling on residents to report violators of coronavirus safety orders have already come under fire for encouraging tattling.

Now police in Ohio are reporting that they are experiencing an added problem, as people have been “tying up” emergency lines in order to call authorities about neighbors, businesses and others who are suspected of violating the state’s social-distancing orders.

Now police in Ohio are reporting that they are experiencing an added problem, as people have been “tying up” emergency lines in order to call authorities about neighbors, businesses and others who are suspected of violating the state’s social-distancing orders.

The Toledo Police Department’s official Twitter account posted a message Tuesday urging residents to call the Lucas County Health Department, and not the police, to report violators.

“Citizens: We are posting this because people are tying up the 911 lines to report others who are not socially distancing,” a tweet by the Department read. “Our goal is to provide the appropriate number for people to call instead of them calling 911.”

Toledo has a motto. You will do better in Toledo.

Toledo is my home town. It is a very blue town.

Keep those 911 lines free.
