‘We have to treat every call seriously and dispatch our members to investigate, but too often discover there is nothing at the scene and the call was a prank.’
Gumede reacted to an incident when a member of the public called in to falsely report that a school learner had shot another.
‘Most prank calls come from cellphones, but we cannot trace them because that involves legal issues and we do not have the resources and time to trace every call.
‘We have also identified a trend of prank calls peaking during school holidays
‘Parents need to educate their children about the consequences of reporting fake crimes.
‘People must realise when they are busy reporting a fake crime, they are blocking the line for someone who needs to get through urgently.’
