• PNP HOTLINE CHANGES FROM 117 TO 911

    0

    INTERIOR Secretary Mar Roxas discussed the possibility of changing the 117 emergency hotline into 911 in a budget hearing at Senate on Monday. The Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) will coordinate with the Philippine National Police (PNP) in changing the emergency hotline to see if it will work out for crime prevention and will lessen the percentage of prank calls. The 117 hotline receives an average of 95 percent of prank calls and directory assistance issues in a day to a supposedly legitimate emergency service hotline, which garnered only 5 percent. People take advantage of the program according to Roxas.
