The Police receives 29 000 false alarms every day

0

The chief of the National Police’s emergency central "105", colonel
Augusto Vega stated that every day they receive an average of 29 thousand
false alarms asking for aid.

According to Vega most of the false alarms are phone calls are made from public telephones and they cause a large unnecessary mobilization of policemen who instead could concentrate in real emergencies.

The police don’t have an accurate system to identify these false alarms, but
their equipment registers the address and number of the call so when they get a phone call from Pueblo Libre reporting an emergency in La Molina they must assume that it is a false alarm.
