Title: Sussex Police - 0845 "Local rate"
Post by Dave on Nov 1st, 2007 at 12:53am
Just come across a couple of FOI responses from Sussex Police. The COI guidelines state "0845 should never be referred to as ‘local rate’ in any publicity or by agents", yet:


Quote:
Income from 0845 number
[ Reference: FOI 150/07 (Apr 2007) ]
Request:
How much does Sussex Police receive from each 0845 phone call made to the force by the public?

[...]

Callers on a land line anywhere in the country are charged for only a local rate call (set by their network supplier) and callers using a mobile are charged at a rate (set by the mobile network supplier). Sussex Police then receive a small part of the revenue of the call charges. Due to the volume of calls associated with this service Sussex Police were offered a rebate, by Affiniti, as part of a formal tender process
