Police in Northbridge, MA, USA have been getting calls from Northbridge, Australia since March this year. It appears the USA number shows up first on smartphone searches for Northbridge police and folks down under select it for autodialing, resulting in intercontinental calls.

For such a dinky place their police department is doing a fantastic job with that social media.  Facebook.  Google.  Streaming audio.  Twitter.  Now that they are getting calls from Australia the first 2.5 pages of Google hits are just about that town's police department.

Now that there is so much interest the next logical step is to sell shares / go public.  Once they are valued over a billion dollars Google or Yahoo will take an interest and acquire the "company".
