This FOI concerns 999 calls which are redirected from the Metropolitan police call centres to forces across the UK at times of heightened activity, and seeks to obtain the landline phone numbers used by your call handling staff to call the Metropolitan police to pass back urgent redirected 999 calls and/or intelligence from urgent redirected 999 calls in four specific time periods in 2017.
 
I am only interested in landline phone numbers used for this purpose in the following four time periods [using 24h clock]:
1. Between 14:00 and 17:00 on 22nd March 2017
2. Between 21:50 and 23:00 on 3rd June 2017
3. Between 00:01 and 01:00 on 19 June 2017
4. Between 00:50 and 23:59 on 14th June 2017

Some forces have a “SIP trunk” through which all outbound calls go through, meaning they have just one external number, referred to as the “CLI (Calling Line Identification)”. For these forces, this would be the number disclosed to the Met if and when any member of the call handling team rings up. If this is the case for you, it could make your searches much quicker!
