Yes, but if the dispatchers asked regular citizens to do something that an officer is expected to do then it would open up the dept to liability, if that person gets hurt. Anything a dispatcher says is recorded and they will always err on the side of least risk to the caller if possible.

On the matter of CT, they "went full retard, You never go full retard."
Of course they did. This new set of BS laws was signed in the wake of a terrible tragedy. As were the same type of laws in NY and CO. The problem with the laws , aside from their middle of the night passing, is they will never work to prevent criminals from disobeying them. They target the wrong people by turning those of us who were obeying the law into criminals. What we need is crime control, not gun control. These feel good laws will have no affect whatsoever on the criminals, they will just continue to disobey them.
Guns don't kill people. Blood loss and organ failure do.

I may live in the North, but I still uphold the Southern Values I was raised with.
