Twitter quiz to be run by cops

Have your say

A TWITTER quiz is to be hosted by Derbyshire Police to mark the first year of the force’s 101 contact number.

The force introduced the number on October 24 last year as part of a move to make it easier to call the police in non-emergencies.

The Twitter quiz is aimed at highlighting when to use 101.

A virtual police surgery will also be held for people to ask call handlers questions about the types of incidents they have to deal with.

The quiz will run from 10am to 4pm on Wednesday, October 24, with the hashtag #999or101.

Chief Inspector Tracy Harrison, deputy head of contact management, said: “The 101 number is helping to improve the non-emergency service we offer as it is easier to remember and is the same across the country.”
