Had the Beat Sargent meet me at the home and was told entry is at the officers discretion and kicking in the door is safer than breaking a window and cost is not a factor???
Officer said there could have been a person unconscious on the floor inside so they must gain entry by any means necessary...
Plenty of examples of human error when it comes to 911
Here is one where the dispatcher had the correct information but provided the wrong information to responders...

I totally understand what you are saying and I'm sorry you had to go through this. All I am trying to say is that police and fire do not know your address, they reply on information from the phone company. If AT&T misreported the address I think you have a good chance of recovering the cost of the damages from them.

Most of them are though. I thought I could walk in and do it like the state I came from. Nope...I had to drive illegally in the state until my appointment date arrived. No this is not normal in other states.

Help may be coming our way. California has a new DMV Director, Steve Gordon.

Tech entrepreneur Steve Gordon got a glimpse of how wary Californians are of the Department of Motor Vehicles when he visited an office near his San Jose home at 6 a.m. one morning and found people waiting in line — even though the doors didn’t open until 8.

One man brought a lawn chair for the two-hour wait and told Gordon what others also shared: He was there early to avoid an expected crush of people. News reports last year detail ed horror stories of packed DMV offices where customers had to wait in line for four to six hours.

Here’s hoping. I tried to make an appointment online and there were none in the San Diego area. So that leaves a three hour wait to walk in.

It’s a toss up which organization is more useless, DMV or TSA.

Did you check current wait times & consider going in without an appointment? The office closest to my house usually has lines out the door, but the Davis office is never very busy.

The Willows office is normally fairly quiet too.

ICE raids should be held at DMV offices. You heard it here first.
