An internal investigation has been launched into the possibility that a 911 call made in Calgary on Feb. 28 may have a connection to torture case involving a former Calgary man.

The call alleging an assault was made at 6:30 p.m. that day but officers were never dispatched.
No details about who made the call, or what was said, are being released.

Calgary police were the first to learn of the 911 call.

“Through our investigation we were made aware of this call and we contacted the PSC (Public Safety Communications) to make them aware as well,” explained Insp. Monty Sparrow.

The head of the 911 call centre in Calgary said the matter is being treated seriously.

“We will get to the bottom of this and report those findings back to the Calgary Police Service,” said Steve Dongworth, head of the 911 call centre in Calgary.

The results of the 911 call centre investigation are expected to be given to police next week.

The victim’s relatives say if anything wasn’t handled correctly by the call centre, changes need to be made.
