The department, he explained, has call-takers that can speak English, Arabic, Chinese, Farsi, and Hindi, among other languages.
Statistics from the department also showed that there was a 96.5 per cent customer satisfaction with the 999 call centre over the last three years, and 94.7 per cent satisfaction rate for the same period for the department’s patrols.
