Money has gotten tight in some US towns as local Police in Smithfield, N.C. may have to ignore 911 calls to save gas money.
Police in Smithfield say they may have to stop investigating misdemeanors and ignore some 911 calls if town leaders don’t provide more gas money. This involves detectives ignoring calls from hotels and pay phones. They would also have to stop responding to burglar alarms.
If this continues, Dominos might have to start.. *gasp*.. start charging for delivery.
Local Police are asking for $30,000 in extra budget for gas money. Town leaders said no.
