The war on campuses regarding squatting. Came out of these false alarm statute. In other spots are workers. And about a year ago on force and chances to realize that there problem swapping and so we made a minor modifications. Statute been. And what we're trying to do now is more precisely aren't prime. So it covers any instance. When someone communicate well alt skull. Or emergency services whether that's dumb answer our lead story. So you you were just coming a tougher on anybody who does sets then I'd just. And that regardless of where that leads a mean obviously we've had some tragic tragic things happen but. As you know over the years we've had people can false calls to 911 for years and years. And as a matter of fact we used to look at those balls calls 911 has nuisance calls some people are there. Funny your jokes but when you make the call the police with the intention of bringing our swat team. With rifles. And when you claim that beep or being or injured in side oust. And it has it can have tragic consequences as we sort which are and something you speed up. NEA is a good point I mean do we in the media when we hear a story about somebody calling 911 because they want. Copped to deliver pizza or something silly like that we make light of it but. It if you can become a a big problem for those dispatchers. And the officers who show up on a scene someplace in the and they think they have good information but. Maybe they got completely false information. One Justine it's bad or not. People that were killed in these circumstances. But when you talk about law enforcement resources both officers are needed somewhere else. In which are worse situation where. On Porsche and officers to we have calls stating they run from call call call and it's a serious problem. When people make. Balls calls at least our camp. Whether someone bars which is terrible circumstance. Will wonder just what he saw more resources. We need to but it went to a. Are you in your colleague. Are you of the same bid I know this is.
