The Chief Constable of Northamptonshire Police is on message – literally.
Members of the public calling the force non-emergency 101 number will now be greeted by the voice of Chief Constable Simon Edens.
Once through to Northamptonshire Police, callers are welcomed by Mr Edens and asked to listen to the relevant options in order to get through to the correct department.
Mr Edens, who has been in post since 27 July, is keen to make a difference. He said: “I’m the chief constable of Northamptonshire police and it’s my responsibility to keep the people of this county safe. It makes sense that people calling us up are greeted by the person given this responsibility.”
The public are advised to call 101 in non-emergencies and always dial 999 in an emergency.
