Maybe a useful piece of information..............

*I know you dont all live in Dorset but a mobile is a mobile where ever
you live I didn't know about 112 did you ?.*

*A bit of useful advice - verified by the Dorset Police . *
*The number does work from a mobile.*
*This actually happened to someone's daughter. Lauren was 19 yrs old and
in college.*
*This story takes place over the Christmas/New Year's holiday break.*
*It was the Saturday before New Year and it was about 1.00pm in the
afternoon, and Lauren was driving to visit a friend, *
*when an UNMARKED police car pulled up behind her and put its lights on.
Lauren's parents have 4 children (of various ages) *
*and have always told them never to pull over for an unmarked car on the
side of the road , but rather wait until they get to a service station,
etc *
*So Lauren remembered her parents' advice, and telephoned 112 from her
mobile phone. *
*This connected her to the police dispatcher she told the dispatcher that
there was an unmarked police car with a flashing blue light on his rooftop

behind her and*
*that she would not pull over right away but wait until she was in a
service station or busy area. *
*The dispatcher checked to see if there was a police car where she was and

there wasn't and he told her to keep driving, *
*remain calm and that he had back-up already on the way. *
*Ten minutes later 4 police 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 that bit of advice, but especially for a woman alone in a
car, you do not have to pull over for an UNMARKED car. *
*Apparently police have to respect your right to keep going to a 'safe'
place. *
*You obviously need to make some signals that you acknowledge them I.e.,
put on your hazard lights) or call 112 like Lauren did. *
*Too bad the mobile phone companies don't give you this little bit of
wonderful information. *
*So now it's your turn to let your friends know about 112 *
*(112 is an emergency number on your mobile that takes you straight to the

police because 999 does not work if you have no signal) . *
*This is good information that I did not know!*

*Please pass on to all your friends, especially any females.** *

Thanks to .tUrniP for the sig
