City’s digitally recorded 911 calls accidentally erased

Connecticut officials say all of Waterbury’s digitally recorded 911 calls from 2017 have been erased. Authorities say the error was due to a software upgrade that recorded over the calls with new data. There was a backup hard drive for the calls, but police say that was also deleted due to changes with the software.

The Republican-American reported Saturday thousands of calls were erased from computer hard drives operated by Northwest Communications, a nonprofit that oversees emergency dispatching in the city.

Acting Police Chief Fernando Spagnolo says police discovered the issue in late May when they couldn’t find a call from last year that was connected to a criminal case.
