A note from Newcastle 911 Management:

“Members of the public are requested to please make sure of a situation before calling it in to the 911 Control Room. We do receive calls requesting our help at specific addresses, but when members get there, all is quiet.”

The CPF also urged members of the public to be cautious of suspicious people and vehicles in their area.

“When calling it in to the Control Room, please try and give a detailed description of the make and model of a vehicle and registration number if possible. Also, with people, please try and give a detailed description of the clothing being worn.”

All 911 members who respond to complaints use their own transport and at their own cost.
