Live updates as Suffolk Police reveal details of 999 calls

Readers can expect real-time updates on numerous incidents as Suffolk Police hold a live tweetathon today.

From 11am, a team of officers will give basic details of 999 calls from the force’s Twitter account, which will last for 10 hours.

This will be done to show the demand on control room operators, who are based at the police headquarters in Martlesham, near Woodbridge, and to remind residents of the other ways they can report incidents, such as Suffolk Police’s live chat.

Only basic details of incidents will be given by officers, which means no identifying details will be revealed.

Suffolk Police and Crime Commissioner Tim Passmore said the event was a good opportunity for the public to see what officers deal with on a day-to-day basis and thed sheer volume of calls they receive.

He said: “There has been a significant investment in the control room over the past two years – funded by the policing precept – and this has included improving online reporting and the introduction of live chat to alleviate the strain on the 101 service.”
