Remember 101 is the new Police Non-emergency number

The 101 number is coming up to its 6 month anniversary! It replaced the old 0845 in 2011 to report non emergency crime.  It is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Call 101 to contact the police to report less urgent crime and disorder or to speak to your local officers.

For example, call 101:

  • if your car has been stolen
  • if your property has been damaged
  • if you suspect drug use or dealing in your local area
  • to report a minor traffic accident
  • to give the police information about crime in your area
  • to speak to the police about a general enquiry
