    Once again, this is far outside the realm of stuff for which there is any standard procedure.

    He could be inside. He could be outside. They could decide to use a motel. They could decide not to.

    Okay thanks, that helps a lot!

    I was wondering, when the woman's house is first broken into.. and she calls the police. When the first available units respond and drive to her house, what would the 911 operator, or police dispatcher on the phone, tell the woman to do if her house is being broken into? Would police dispatcher be able to put the unit who is driving to her house on the phone with her directly, to find out what is going on, so he knows, when he arrives?

    The information would go to the 911 operator, and the 911 operator would relay it to the officer.

    The 911 operator would (probably) advise the person to get out of the house if possible, and if not then to hide somewhere or barricade themselves somewhere until the police could arrive.

    Okay thanks. Would the operator stay on the phone with her till the situation was resolved more, or would the operator have to hang up on her in order to be available for other possible emergency calls?

    The operator should properly stay on the line until the caller is in contact with officers on the scene.

    Hanging up on someone in that situation would be a no-no.

    Okay thanks, that's what I thought. So the 911 operator would alert the police her/himself right? Or would a police dispatcher relay it to the officers, while she keeps talking to the person who called?

    So when the police respond to the break in, and respond to her call, would they come in with their pistols drawn, or would they bring out larger weapons, such as shotguns or something like that?

    Like anything else, different departments do everything differently.

    Some have the 911 call taker dispatch the officers. Some have two different people perform those roles. Some departments have rifles and shotguns available for officers and some don't.

    As far as how the weapons would be deployed at the scene, it would depend a little on the information available to the officers at the time and a lot on the preferences of the individual officers involved.

    Okay thanks. Where I live, the officers have shotguns in the patrol cars, when doing regular patrol. So if they already had them with them, would they take them then?
