Police Investigate 111 Failure
Police are investigating why an emergency 111 call failed to
raise help, even though officers were patroling near by.
Northern Police Communications centre operator is being
questioned after women at an Auckland safe house were
terrorised by a knife wielding man.
Emergency 111 calls
were made but police did not answer them.
Police now admit
patrols were in the area and were available when the calls
for help were made.
Initially, police said a lack of
staff was why no one was sent to the scene.
today, a police spokesperson said human error was to blame.
