'Help,' I am being attacked!

“Help, a man is forcing me to go to a hotel for sex.”

This message was picked up by the 39-year-old woman police inspector Kim Sang-hee at 2:49 a.m., June 29.

The woman in her 20s reportedly said he was going to take her to her home but headed for some kind of a hotel, the location of which she did not know.

The inspector sensed the urgency in the caller’s voice and tried to calm her down, saying that “police will be there shortly. Please be patient.”

She proceeded to track down the location of the mobile phone of the caller by using the global positioning system (GPS) and determined that she was in a hotel in Seocho-dong, southern Seoul. It took a total of three minutes and 20 seconds to arrest the culprit.

Up until the middle of October, Inspector Kim dealt with 23,475 calls of through 112 emergency calls at the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency, ranking her top among the 126 staff members in charge of handling 112 reports.

It is more than double the average of 10,900 cases. She also contributed to arrest of 402 suspected sex offenders and other criminals.

성추행 당하는 여성 3분만에 구해낸 '달인'

김상희 경위, 사상 첫 신고처리 업무로 특진

'도와주세요! 어떤 남자가 강제로 호텔로 데려와 성추행을 해요!'
서울경찰청 112신고종합상황실에서 근무하는 김상희(39) 경사는 지난 6월 29일 오전 2시49분쯤 한 20대 여성으로부터 다급한 신고 전화를 받았다.

이 여성은 '남자가 집에 데려다 준다더니 호텔로 데려왔는데 어디인지도 모르겠다'며 울먹였다. 위급한 상황임을 직감한 김 경사는 '경찰이 곧 도착하니 조금만 기다리라'고 안심시킨 뒤 경찰 출동을 요청하는 긴급버튼을 눌렀다.

동시에 GPS(위성항법장치)로 통화 위치를 추적해 서울 서초동 소재 A호텔로 파악, 출동한 경찰이 3분20초 만에 범인을 현장에서 검거하는 데 결정적인 기여를 했다.
김 경사는 10월 중순까지 2만3,475건의 112신고를 처리, 서울청 112신고 업무자 126명 중 1위를 차지했다. 1인당 평균 실적(1만900건)의 갑절 이상을 해낸 것으로 그만큼 신속하고 빈틈없이 처리했다는 뜻이다.

덕분에 성폭행 등 각종 범죄자 402명을 검거하는데도 기여했다.
