Caller confronts top Scots cop over control room closure LIVE on radio

Jul 03, 2017, 04:03 AM

Assistant Chief Constable John Hawkins took questions LIVE on Scotland's Talk In. On the nationwide programme he defended the project to centralise police control rooms, meaning the closure of local call centres. Eventually all emergency calls to the constabulary will be dealt with in Govan, Dundee, and Edinburgh - for the whole of Scotland. One caller, David, from Inverness, told ACC Hawkins that he's experienced a lack of local knowledge when calling 999.
