12 Brave Police Officers Reveal What Call They Wish They Hadn't Taken.
Former police dispatcher here. Lady got engaged to the love of her life. They had a beach party, and 2-3 hours after he proposes, he goes swimming, while piss drunk. Had to spend 15 minutes talking to a woman while our diver found her fiancé. No currents, so it was a quick dive, but I'll never forget that call, or her voice. What a brutal emotional swing in a day. That job fucked me up.
911 Dispatcher. Stayed on the phone with a young kid hiding in his closet for 45 minutes as his dad beat the ever loving shit out of his mother in the next room. They lived pretty far out from the nearest detachment, so it took a while for the officers to get there.
