WMAQ-TV's investigative team aired a series centered around Chicago police officers who were assigned to work at the city's 911 emergency dispatch center. It found that officers assigned to respond to emergency calls were routinely asleep at their consoles. In direct response to the investigation, the chief of the 911 emergency division was forced out and after Chicago City Council hearings reforms were taken to punish sleeping officers, May 19 - 20, 1994.
