SINGAPORE: The Singapore Police Force (SPF) experienced problems receiving calls made to its 999 police emergency line and 1800-255-0000 hotline on Thursday (Aug 29).
It was restored about 15 minutes after notice of the disruption was announced.
In a Facebook post at 11.45am, police asked members of the public to instead call 1800-333-0000 if urgent assistance is needed.
“Members of the public can continue to provide information via the I-Witness portal at http://www.police.gov.sg/iwitness,” it wrote.
SPF later posted an update on Facebook at 12pm, saying that the lines have been restored.
"We apologise for the inconvenience caused," it said.
