*112 number for your cell...
My Daddy sent this email¬†to me and I wanted to pass the message along.
Spread the word!¬† Stay Safe!
"¬†Some knew¬† about the red light on cars,
>¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† but not¬† 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 way.
>¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† 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¬† keep going to a
>¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† *Speaking¬† to a service representative at ** Bell **¬† Mobility
confirmed that *112
>¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† was¬† a direct link to State¬† trooper info. 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"
