17. Brief the members of the household to note the caller's name and phone no. so that a return call can be made. In case of suspicion, make the return call immediately.

19. In case of threat or anonymous phone calls do not panic or cut off the call. Note the exact time of call and duration. Identify the caller or person/ organization. After the call is over please note down the exact words of the person making the call, sex and estimated age of the caller, voice tone and attitude of the caller (loud, soft, articulate, angry, calm, intoxicated, threatening, serious, joking, warning etc.), any background noises (street sound, music, party, train, office sounds etc.), accent and if possible ethnic origin.
