#999Calls Throughout December, Devon & Cornwall Police are running a campaign to help manage demand on their contact centre during the festive season. Every Christmas and New Year, calls to 999 increase and whilst a lot are genuine emergencies, many are not. In November alone we have seen a 23% increase in 999 calls compared to last year, and it is expected this continued increase will be seen over the festive period. As part of the campaign, we have created a series of funny videos to accompany real recordings of inappropriate calls to the emergency 999 number.
