A man from Underwood near Launceston is bringing his treatment by a female emergency phone operator to light.
In February last year, Mark Scully rang triple zero seeking police help, claiming three men were threatening to kill him.
During the call, the operator questioned whether Mark was an idiot and threatened to not send help if he didn't answer her questions.
He claims police didn't arrive for three hours.
Tasmania Police has made an assurance the Radio Dispatch Officer has been spoken to about modifying her manner.
