I don't have a police officer that I can bother right now, maybe someone would know what the typical response would be: Costa Mesa, CA, a relatively tame, mostly middle class So. Cal. town, pop 110,000. Call comes in to 911, the neighbors saw two burglars leaving apartment, door was locked, got the manager to open the door, and their neighbor was dead, definitely dead, the body was cold. It's around 1am in the morning when they make that call to 911. In the story, I have it that the police roll in front of the apartment, no sirens but lights flashing, 3 cop cars and a coroner. Is this a believable response. The main part is the sirens, because the perpetrators are three blocks away at an all-night diner and they have no idea the cops have already arrived until they're out of the parking lot driving back down the street towards the scene.
