Cambridgeshire Police say demand for officers is at an all-time high
Demand is at an all-time high for Cambridgeshire Police, with the force receiving a 999 call every four minutes and reports of a non-emergency every 90 seconds.
As a result, police are asking the public to think carefully about whether the situation they face is a policing matter, encouraging people to make use of online reporting and highlighting the negative impact of hoax calls.
They have also launched a “what happens next” campaign to explain to victims the process following a crime or intelligence report and the likely timescales involved.
