130 abusive triple-0 calls: Fairfield Heights woman charged

A 50-year-old female from Fairfield Heights has been charged with allegedly making vexatious call to triple zero.

On Tuesday, March 6, triple zero operators received calls from the same phone number on 10 occasions with the operators receiving abuse over the phone.

Over the past six months emergency services have received more than 130 calls from the same number/address.

Police investigated and charged a 50-year-old female and she will appear at Fairfield Local Court on April 3.

Fairfield City police want to remind people the triple zero service is there to assist the whole community, but should only be used in emergency situations, as when it is abused emergency service resources are tied up unnecessarily.
