HC Deb 16 April 2002 vol 383 cc836-7W
Mrs. Iris Robinson

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many calls were received at Carryduff police station from members of the public in the last three years; and how many responses there were to them over the same period. [37107]

Jane Kennedy

The Chief Constable has advised me that it is not possible to answer the aspect of how many calls were received as there is a central telephone switchboard in the Greater Belfast area to which members of the public would seek assistance in the first instance, i.e. 02890 650222.

Similarly, emergency telephone calls to the 999 system again go to a central control room. While Carryduff police station does have a number of its own, statistics are not collated as to how many calls are made to it.

The number of incidents receiving a response from Carryduff police station are as follows.

1999 4,298
2000 4,506
2001 4,494
