Dial *112 for Police dispach

* I jumped the gun on this. A friend of mine found I was tricked. the *112 number is at best a redirect to 911 according to most sources. *

My mom forwarded me an email today, you know how that goes. Email from Moms are usually either pictures of dogs or jokes that sit right on the edge of being edgy (assuming your mom is cool enough not to send inspirational poems). But this one was different. The following story came from that email and while I cannot verify it I can say it is an excellent example of the need for *112 service which I previously didn’t know of.

*112 on a cell phone will put you in touch with local police dispatch.

The *112.

It was about 1:00 p.m. In the afternoon, and Lauren was driving to visit a

friend. An UNMARKED police car pulled up behind her and put his lights on.

Lauren’s parents have always told her  never to pull over for an unmarked

car on the side of the road, but rather  to wait until they get to a gas

station, etc.

Lauren had actually listened to her  parents advice, and promptly called

*112 on her cell phone to tell the

Police dispatcher that  she would not pull over right away. She proceeded

to tell the dispatcher that there was an unmarked police car with a

flashing red light on his rooftop behind her. The dispatcher checked to

see if there were police cars where she was and there weren’t, and he told

her to keep driving,  remain calm and that he had back up already on the


Ten minutes later 4 cop cars surrounded her and the unmarked car behind

her. One policeman went to her side and the others surrounded the car

behind. They pulled the guy from the car and tackled him to the ground.

The man was a convicted rapist and wanted for other crimes.

I never knew about the *112 Cell Phone Feature,

But especially for a woman alone in a car,  you should not pull over for

an unmarked car. Apparently police have to respect your right to keepgoing

to a safe place.

*Speaking to a service representative at **  Bell  ** Mobility confirmed

that*112 was a direct link to State trooperinfo. So, now  it’s your turn

to let your friends know about *112.

You may want to Send this to every woman (and man) you know; it  may save

a life.

This applies to ALL 50 states

    b-b-b-b-but if it’s on the internet, it must be true! Dude, you’d believe anything, even for a second, you get in a forwarded email (even if it is from your mother?) I’ll forward you an email with the details of a lovely bridge that I have for sale in the New York area. You can afford it, what with the millions you’re going to be receiving soon from your wise investment in Nigeria….
