Today it has been revealed that a British police constabulary ignored almost 600 emergency calls last year, around 50 each month and more than one per day.
According to a Freedom of Information (FOI) request by a Scottish newspaper, the figures show that police constabularies in Moray and Aberdeen failed to send assistance to 583 emergency calls between April 2014 and March 2015.
Reports of traffic accidents, public disorder and cruelty to animals were also ignored.
Speaking to the Press and Journal, who made the FOI request, the mother of a man who went missing slammed the findings.
