Holic responds to concerns regarding him referring non emergencies to 911
Here is reply from Holic in reference to my email questioning him about telling people to call 911 for non emergencies…..
“911 is the preferred number for the police department if you need their services and is always manned. My understanding is that if you have a situation that requires a police officer, that is the number to use; if you just have questions or wish to talk with a particular employee or call to compliment VPD for the good job they are doing, they non-emergency number is the one to use. The non-emergency should not be used if you are expecting a police officer to be dispatched. Additionally, the non-emergency number is not always manned and the call may be forwarded to the call center in Sarasota. I hope this addresses your concerns, but I have copied VPD so that they can correct my statement as necessary.
Sincerely, John Holic Mayor, City of Venice”
