911 is now officially the national emergency hotline.


This is one of President Rodrigo Duterte’s measures to fight crime and corruption.


911 is implemented in the entire Philippines. You do not need to dial the area code of the place where you are making the call.


8888, on the other hand, is dedicated to complaints against fixers, scalawag officials, and poor government services.


Callers will be asked to identify the government employee and agency tagged in their complaint, date, and details of the incident, their proposed solution and contact details.


The complaints will be forwarded to both the concerned agency and the Office of the  President within five days.
