Not sure if we have a specific trope for scrambling all emergency services other than Red Alert? Played for Laughs, in this case. But the list itself is just Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking.

Pretty sure Long List itself is the one that you want here.

Increasingly silly Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking inclusions are one of the common forms of the trope- Say someone is reading off Bob's combat qualifications, and the list goes something like "light and heavy firearms, judo, riddles, fencing (sabre and foil), lucha libre, knifes, krav maga, sporks..."
