Proper use of 999 urged

August 04, 2017

Police today urged the public to use the 999 hotline for emergencies only.


Police Regional Command & Control Centres received more than one million calls in the first six months of this year.


Only 66.3% were genuine urgent calls for help. The rest were misdialled or nuisance calls.


Police said hotline misuse delays the handling of genuine emergencies, endangering the lives of people in urgent need of Police assistance.


People should contact police stations for non-emergency requests and to report crimes.


A list of police station contact numbers is on the Police website.
