News : 10111 Call Centre Fully Operational
Johannesburg, Feb 11, 2014 -- Gauteng police say the 10111 Emergency Call Centre in Midrand is fully operational despite some staff members protesting over their salaries.
It's understood National Police Commissioner Riah Phiyega and Provincial Commissioner Lesetja Mothiba are due to address staff there later today.
Eyewiitness News has spoken to employees at the centre, who have complained about their working conditions and the fact that their salaries are yet to be adjusted to a new set of grades.
But the police's Neville Malila says additional members have been brought in to man the phones and help dispatch vehicles.
"The centre is up and running. We have deployed people at the centre so people don’t have to worry that if they call the 10111 emergency line that their calls won’t be answered. Their calls will be answered."
