POLICE staff who take 999 and non emergency calls are to come face to face with their public, beginning next Wednesday (December 9) in South Molton.
Members of the police call handling service, both officers and civilian staff, are being sent to community meetings across Devon in the next few months in a bid to improve public satisfaction and confidence in the police.
They will give a brief presentation covering when people should call 999 or the non urgent 08452 777444 number and what they can expect when they do.
Other topics include the police appointments system and what happens with the information the customer has provided. Following the presentation there will be an opportunity to ask questions.
