BRANCH COUNTY, MI (WTVB) - It couldn’t have come at a better time with reduced law enforcement services in Branch County because of deputy layoffs at the Sheriff’s Department. 9-1-1 Central dispatch Sunday had one of its slowest days in sometime with only 80 calls listed on its log.
Normally, it’s well over 100, like on Friday, when there were 154 events posted on the log. In fact, it was way quiet yesterday for nearly three hours, and it wasn’t overnight. Between 6:32 a.m. and 9:21 a.m., there was not a single entry in the listing of basic events. Remember the day, February Tenth, 2013, and see when is the next time that happens.
