What can I do about annoying or harassing phone calls?
Harassing or annoying phone calls can be hang-up calls, calls in which the caller doesn't say anything, calls in which the caller is verbally abusive or harassing, or calls from someone who you do not want calling your home.

If you are getting annoying or harassing phone calls, tell the caller to stop calling you. If the calls persist, or if the caller was threatening, contact the Fitchburg Police Department at 608-270-4300. Fitchburg has an ordinance against these types of phone calls. An officer will respond and take your complaint. If you know the number of the person who called you, or know the person's name, please provide that to the police. If the caller and phone number are not known, you can contact the phone company with the name of the police officer you spoke to and the case number. If calls continue, document the date / time of any additional calls and contact the officer that responded to your original complaint.
