User Aisakura7 of www.reddit.com, who claims to work for the town of Northbridge in Massachusetts, said dispatch had been getting non-stop calls for the past two weeks about incidents happening in Northbridge WA.
�After we don’t recognize the street they are mentioning, they then proceed to tell them how expensive this phone call will be,� the user said.
�Sure enough, if you google, �Northbridge� the first thing that comes up is my town, Northbridge MA, in the US.
�People must be googling the police phone number and dialling ours.�
Sergeant David Ball said Northbridge�s local policing team information was easily accessible at the WA Police website. �Basically, it clearly states Northbridge MA when googled, MA being I guess Massachusetts, so perhaps people are just misreading Google when they put in Northbridge Police,� Sgt Ball said.
�If they require assistance from police in Northbridge WA, go to the WA police website where they can obtain a mobile phone number for the local policing team.� For more information visit www.police.wa.gov.au
