The National Police Service says they have arrested nearly 1,000 suspects in Juba since the launch of the emergency call line 777 in July this year.

The Police Spokesman, Colonel James Monday Enoka, says 240 individuals were arrested because they had stolen money from people in different neighborhoods.

He says 27 others were arrested of committing violence and 760 others were involved in different crimes.

‘‘This is the service we have provided to the public since the launch of the emergency call center and this is good,” he told Eye Radio.

He says the people have been telling the police that “they (people) say that they feel safe because there is always a response from emergency call center.”

Col Monday says security has improved due to the introduction of the emergency line and the cooperation of the people.

The Emergency call center was launched in July this year for the public to be able to access the police.
They can call a free number and the police will be able to respond to emergencies quickly.
