Police announces non-emergency number - it's 105
At 10:05 am on the 10th of the 5th, New Zealand Police launched 105 ("ten five"), the eagerly anticipated number for the public to report non-emergency situations to Police.
"More than 60 years on from the first 111 call, the launch of 105 today is a milestone for New Zealand Police, offering a new way for people to connect with us," says Commissioner of Police Mike Bush.
"The 105 number and our online platform - 105.police.govt.nz (link is external) - will make it easier for the public to engage with us for non-emergency help, advice and support."
