NCD police in talks for toll-free number

Police in the National Capital District are currently working with telecommunication stakeholder companies to put in place a toll-free number.

This is for NCD residents to call in to report occurring incidents, says Metropolitan Superintendent Perou N’Dranou.

Mobile phone users can be able contact police in emergencies; an initiative the police boss would like to be up and running by the end of the year.

“Telikom and bmobile-vodafone have already stepped in to assist us with toll-free numbers.”

He said the telecommunication firms were the first to jump on board since they were the initiators.

“But this does not stop Digicel and they are welcome to come on board as well,” N’Dranou said.
