Allen County residents dial 911 about 3,500 times a month. But a few of those calls put a questionable burden on local emergency services.

In a typical week, 911 emergency units are called to help rouse children out of bed before school, stop brothers and sisters from fighting and keep estranged couples from abusing each other and each other’s property.

“Is that the best use of our law enforcement resources?” asked Wade Bowie, Allen County district attorney. “No, but it’s a balancing act.”
