- Two call takers from the city's 911 center were suspended without pay for failing to send police to a West Side residence from which Quintonio LeGrier was calling for help.
LeGrier, 19, called 911 three times on the morning after Christmas from his father's apartment. But it wasn't until the third call that the city's Office of Emergency Management and Communications sent a squad car to the 4700 block of West Erie Street to check on him.
[...] One of the call takers from OEMC was given a three-day suspension for failing to send a squad car after the teen claimed in his first 911 call at 4:18 a.m. that his life was being threatened, OEMC spokeswoman Melissa Stratton said Tuesday. The call taker who picked up LeGrier's second 911 call, at 4:20 a.m., was suspended for one day after also failing to dispatch police, Stratton said.
LeGrier's third call was made at 4:21 a.m., and a different OEMC dispatcher sent the police. A fourth call at 4:24 a.m. was made by LeGrier's father, Antonio LeGrier, who said his son was trying to break into his bedroom with a baseball bat.
