NZ Police have had to ask the public to stop Snaphatting them about emergencies

So, if you didn't already already know, the New Zealand Police have their very own national Snapchat. 

They've recently had to release a statement asking the public to please stop Snapchatting them when there is an emergency, as that is what 111 is for (and funnily enough, they don't have someone checking it 24/7).

Here's the statement.

So, if you have them on SNapchat and it's life or death, best you give them a buzz instead.
