Annoying Phone Calls

An annoying telephone call is one that is made by a person who has the intent to annoy and addresses to or about such other person any obscene language or addresses to such other person any threat to inflict injury to the person or property of the person addressed or any member of his family, or one who makes a telephone call with the intent to annoy another and without disclosing his true identity to the person answering the telephone, whether or not conversation ensues from making the telephone call.

What to Do

  • If it is an emergency situation Dial 911
  • Call the police department and make a report 897-2300 (non-emergency)
  • After a police report is made, call GTE security (805) 372-8431
  • Have GTE put a "trap" on your phone line.
  • A Crime Against Persons detective will then call to investigate after GTE notifies that detective of a successful “trap” for the purpose of seeking a misdemeanor complaint.
