Why Flint police have been shut down after the death of a 911 operator
Police in Flint, Michigan, have been forced to close a 911 call center after a man died of an apparent overdose, officials said Friday.
On Friday, police said that they were forced to shut down the call center due to an overdose, and they are continuing to investigate the cause of the death.
The caller told dispatchers that he had just purchased a new car and was heading home, according to the Flint Police Department.
A short time later, the man died.
The Flint Fire Department and the state Department of Health and Human Services are investigating the death and are looking into possible overdose as well as possible toxic exposure.
Flint is one of the most dangerous places in the United States to call 911.
The city has a population of roughly one million, but it has a per capita death rate of nearly five times the national average.
A 2014 report by the Pew Research Center found that nearly one in four Americans had called 911 in 2016.
Florence police are investigating what caused the man’s death.
Flint’s mayor said on Thursday that police were investigating the man, but did not specify the circumstances of his death.
