Q787: What are the benefits of 101?
• 101 provides one easy-to-remember number to contact the police anywhere in Scotland
• For the first time there will be a single flat rate charge
• The cost of the call will be transparent to the public and, in many cases, cheaper than current non-emergency numbers
• 101 can potentially reduce pressure on the 999 system, allowing the police to prioritise the most urgent calls for help?
