Do you know when to call 999?
We, along with other emergency services, face a high demand amount of calls into 999.
But how many people know when they should call 999 and, in particular, the police rather than other organisations?
Recent information shows that not everyone does, with calls ranging from enquiries about flea infestations to 'no credit on my phone'. In light of this we are calling on you to help us keep our lines free for your emergencies only.
The campaign will feature a range of examples of calls via our social media channels, all leading back to one, clear message: only call 999 during an emergency.
