West Midlands Police take part in 24 hour 'tweetathon'


Due to the number of calls, we operate a 'graded' policy - where officers respond to the most urgent ones as quickly as possible.


It's down to the 999 operator to grade the response given. There are three types of response: immediate, early and routine.


999 call just received from an unlocked phone in a pocket, tying up an emergency line. Remember to check your phone is locked! #fcc24
