"Present Location Identifying System" has started its operation.

Traffic signs can tell us where you are calling from.

The number of emergency calls from mobile-phones is on the rise every year but there are quite a few cases that a caller cannot tell us where he/she is calling from.
Osaka Prefectural Police is now operating the system that the police can confirm where a caller is with the number on the traffic signs throughout Osaka Prefecture.
If you read the upper three digits and the lower five digits of the number on the traffic sign to us, we can pinpoint where you are calling from.
