I have never had a problem when I have had to call the Sheriff's Office, emergency or not. They all do a wonderful job and you should give them more credit, and worry about more important issues.

Yes, they do a wonderful job, but the problem isn't with the people; the problem is with the system. If you live in, work in, or travel through Pasco County, this is a pretty darn important issue - especially if you need emergency assistance.

It is really disturbing when driving through Pasco County and witnessing a disturbed driver or an accident and you call and they have to take the infor and then patch you to Pasco to report all the info again, the worst part is following a Drunk Driver and they have to keep connecting you with the next district or county.

Why can they not take the information and relay it as necessary, keeping me on the phone as they patch me to one agency who transferes me to another and they transfer me to another is not getting the issue resolved.

I actually notice I pay less attention to assist in emergency needs since it is a pain to call it in.

I agree with gary,
I called 911 a few years back because i was witnessing a guy breaking into houses (plurl)
Did the sheriff show up? nope.
So after 30 min. Of this guy walking from house to house making his way into some houses and passing others we aprehended the guy at gun point and tied him to a tree.
We called again and they never came out.
So whats this prove? Dont call the cops and deal with it your self.
I guess in reality we should have just killed him and droped the body at the courthouse.

it happened again last night the 10th. The 911 calls were coming in about a loaded driver and it took 5 hours to get her only to let her get away so the skank could run over and murder a biker. Nice job pasco county.
