“Working as a 911 operator with the Orleans Parish Communications District at the time, she is wanted for allegedly disconnecting 911 calls deliberately without obtaining necessary emergency information or relaying such emergencies to the other dispatchers for aid,” a New Orleans Police Department press release stated. “The report was taken on August 23, 2021.”

When the New Orleans Parish Communication District was checking the quality of random calls, they noticed issues with calls made during Stephens’ shifts on August 20 and 21. She was later fired from her position, the Times-Picayune noted.
