After the original 911 call which was routed through the Pinellas County 911 center to St Petersburg Police Department Communications Division, apparently no officer was dispatched, though the Police say there was.
On April 14 I called in again, and Officer Amanda Westerman, a young officer of some three years experience was dispatched and met me at my home. After the publicity emerged in the newspapers, TV and radio, another Officer, Libby Roeser, was assigned to the case, replacing Officer Westerman. Later in the year, after we approached Deputy Mayor Tish Elston about the case, a Sergeant Smith was working on it.
I will examine the performance of all these individuals in subsequent posts. Until then, I will say that they at least did a fair job, so won’t be condemning anyone for “inefficiency”.
