Calls are free from payphones.</p><p>The public have always paid to contact the police by telephone for non-emergencies and the 15p charge per call is a transparent rate that fully funds the 101 non-emergency service. Police non-emergency numbers (such as 0845 numbers) which were used before 2011 could cost members of the public up to 40p per minute. While it may not be an option for everyone, the public can also report non-emergency crimes online via forces’ websites, free of charge.</p><p>The Home Office is supporting the digital transformation of policing through programmes such as the Digital Policing Portfolio (DPP), led by the NPCC. Within the DPP, the Digital Public Contact programme aims to provide appropriate digital channels for the public to report and track crime online, facilitating greater public-police interaction in real time.</p> more like this

Similar concerns were also considered by the Council of Europe's Committee for the Prevention of Torture (CPT) in their report, published in March 2018, of their April 2016 visit to the prison in which Mr Öcalan is held. We encourage Turkey to adopt the CPT's recommendations. With regard to the decades of conflict in Turkey, we have consistently urged an end to PKK violence and for both sides to return to a peace process. PKK violence has cost the lives of some thousand members of the Turkish security forces and scores of civilians since July 2015.</p><p> </p> more like this
