911 protocol

My character's stumbled upon a dead body and has called 911. The dispatcher takes the relevant information and gets cops on their way to her. There is absolutely no chance that the character could do any sort of CPR to try and save the victim -- he's pretty much in pieces. My question -- once the dispatcher knows all the pertinent details and cops are on their way, would s/he disconnect and free the line up for other calls, or stay on the line with the woman until the police arrived?
