PARKLAND, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The Broward Sheriff’s Office has released a sampling of 911 calls from the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting that left 17 dead. The calls selected by BSO, arguably, suggest that any response issue may have to do with emergency phone calls being routed to a dispatch center for Coral Springs, only to have Coral Springs dispatchers manually call BSO communications to relay the information.
The first call is painfully slow as a Coral Springs dispatcher tries to explain to a BSO dispatcher which “Douglas” high school is the scene of a shooting, the address, and who it was making the initial reports. The BSO dispatcher is simultaneously speaking and transmitting information to deputies, but the “tale of the tape,” it appears, speaks volumes.
Here is the audio file released by BSO.
