The Association of Chief Police Officers (APCO) have backed a device that claims to block 100 per cent of nuisance calls.
The CPR Call Blocker has been awarded an ‘APCO Secured by Design’ accreditation for its products. The award comes just days after press reports highlighted the failings of the Telephone Preference Service (TPS).
The device, which has been tested under the ACPO Secured by Design licence scheme, will be recommended by all UK police forces as both a preventative and reactive means of stopping unwanted and threatening calls.
In addition to stopping unwanted sales calls, the CPR Call Blocker is seen playing a major role in preventing witness intimidation and verbal domestic violence.
The CPR Call Blocker is the only call-blocking device proven to block 100 per cent of nuisance calls, including those of international origin. Nuisance calls from overseas call centres are an increasing problem for individuals and businesses in the UK
“The CPR Call Blocker is very simple, but meets a need. Nuisance calls are on the increase and this product stops them. Secured by Design supports the creation of new and innovative products such as the CPR Call Blocker,” said Alan McInnes, general manager at Secured by Design.
“The Government and OFCOM have talked about legislation that will put an end to the relentless intrusion into our homes by nuisance callers, but a high percentage of those who make nuisance calls are not compliant. The only way to completely stop nuisance calls is to stop them yourself using the CPR Call Blocker,” said Lee Hare of the Call Prevention Registry.
The CPR Call Blocker costs £39.99 and is available from retailers including Argos, Maplins, Staples and on the Ideal World shopping channel and online at www.cprcallblocker.com
