Callers to Suffolk Police’s non-emergency 101 line will be able to press buttons to choose from a number of departments to be put through to.

From tomorrow, an automated system will be introduced with technology, which has been used successfully by other forces and will allow non-urgent calls to be filtered to departments such as Custody and the Central Ticket Office, allowing operators to better manage other calls.

The project will run with a number of initiatives being introduced as part of the Suffolk Change Programme, which looks at how police resources can be used in the most efficient manner.

In an emergency, or to report a crime in action, always dial 999.
