Did you Know? Some 999 call statistics.

Recently we asked for information from Northamptonshire Police on 999 calls. Between 1st May 2011 and 30th April 2012 the force received 102311 emergency 999 calls. That is 280 calls a day or one every five minutes. During the same period they received 1253 hoax calls and 9223 abandoned calls (although neither of these were necessarily 999 calls). That combined figure of abandoned/hoax calls is representative of around 10% of the 999 calls.
