A civilian call-taker for the State Police was placed on paid administrative leave Jan. 13 after an unidentified individual was found dead on the same day he called 911 and was disconnected 55 seconds later, said David Procopio, State Police spokesman. The victim made the call Jan. 8, which was terminated for reasons not yet determined. Procopio said the call-taker, who has not been named, violated procedure by not using all means possible to ascertain the nature of the call and the identity and location of the caller.
