Dialing 112

A friend on Facebook shared a status from some girl in Arizona stating that, if you find yourself being pulled over by an unmarked car, you can dial 112 and be connected to the state troopers office to find out if its a real officer or not. Of course it had a long dramatic story how it saved some girls life when a convicted rapist tried to pull her over and that it was verified by somebody that works at a phone company. It came off sounding like BS to me.

Is this a real number, or was I right to tell her to disregard this as more Facebook shenanigans? It would seem to me that dialing 911 has worked so well in the past, no department would throw more confusion into the mix with another number.

What say you?

I can't say in all instances, but if you are concerned that it may not be a real officer, pull into a busy area if possible. You could call a dispatch office, but you never know which agency is actually stopping you so they may not have a record of the incident anyway.
