The Telephone Reporting Unit (TRU) had an exceptional year of improved customer service with a sustained call answer rate of 99.76% of the 39,384 calls received. In the months of October and November, we achieved a call answer rate of 100%. Both the waiting time for callers and the amount of abandoned (unanswered) calls were decreased.
