101 Halloween Success: Non-emergency Calls Up following use of 101

Leicestershire Police are pleased that the members of the public are increasing reporting of non-emergency issues following it’s launch of 101 – the national police single non-emergency number, this October.

In the weeks preceding Halloween, sixteen-thousand 101-branded ‘No thanks trick or treaters’ posters were made available to the elderly and vulnerable, allowing them to ‘opt out’ of the festivities.

Superintendent Ian Coulton, Deputy Head of Corporate Services at Leicestershire Police said:

 “We’ve worked to promote the 101 number in October as the number to call regarding non-emergency matters, including Halloween-related anti-social behaviour. It is clear that the public are remembering the number and beginning to grasp the use of 101, with 75 calls to 101 on Halloween Night.

“We will continue to work successfully with our partners to minimise incidents of anti-social behaviour at Halloween and the impact they have on our communities.”

Every year, local police increase patrols across the force area, with increased officer presence on the streets on Halloween night.

The 2011 Halloween campaign urged the public to inform the police about anti-social behaviour by calling 101 this Halloween. Local officers also delivered 16,000 posters to households on their beats, a move which was supported by the Leicester Mercury, other local newspapers and by some of the Force’s 16,750 followers on Twitter.

One Twitter follower said:

“Not sure why people are so bothered about trick-or-treaters. We got a poster from @leicspolice, stuck it on the window, no one bothering us.”

Last year, a total of 398 non-emergency calls were taken by police call handlers between 6pm and midnight on October 31; approximately 17 per cent of those related to Halloween.

This year on October 31, a total of 476 calls were taken by police call handlers, including 75 on 101 the non-emergency number. Thirteen percent of those 476 calls (66 calls in total) related to Halloween.

There was a slight rise of Halloween-related calls about eggs, flour and stones being thrown, up by ten incidents, from 51 in 2010 to 61 this year.

Anyone with information about crime and anti-social behaviour in Leicester, Leicestershire or Rutland is urged to call Leicestershire Police on 101* or Crimestoppers, which is free** and anonymous, on             0800 555 111      .

* Calls to 101 cost 15p for the entire call from both mobile phones and land lines
** Please note some mobile phone service providers may charge for this call.
