The number of hoax/non-emergency calls made to Triple Zero (000)
Attorney-General's Department did not have the information requested.
From: Lucy Dwyer
Dear Attorney-General's Department,
I wish to make an informal request regarding the number of calls made to the Triple Zero (000) service that were either non-emergencies or "hoax" calls in the last calendar year of 2015.
From: FOI Requests
Dear Ms Dwyer
Thank you for your e-mail of 23 February 2016 (below). Unfortunately, we are unable to help with your inquiry as the Commonwealth Attorney-Generalâ€™s Department does not hold information about calls to the triple zero (000) emergency service.
Information about the triple zero service is available on the triple zero website at http://www.triplezero.gov.au/Pages/defau....
Telstra has responsibility for providing the service that answers calls to triple zero (000) and transfers them to the requested emergency service organisation such as a State or Territory police or ambulance service.
Inquiries regarding triple zero (000) call data can be made to the Triple Zero Operator by email: [email address].
I hope this information is of some assistance.
