999 Emergency Number

In an emergency you should always dial 999 if:

  • There is a risk of personal injury or loss of life
  • A crime is in progress
  • Someone suspected of a crime is nearby

Deaf, deafened, hard of hearing or speech-impaired callers using a Textphone (minicom) should dial 18000 in an emergency.

101 Non-Emergency Number

For non-emergencies and general enquiries, 101 is the number you call if you need to contact the police. Using 101 for situations that do not require an immediate police response helps keep 999 available for when there is an emergency.

Calls to 101 from landlines and mobiles cost 15 pence per call, no matter what time of day you call or how long your call lasts.

 

Deaf/Hard of Hearing callers

Deaf, deafened, hard of hearing or speech-impaired callers can contact us via TextRelay on 1 800 1 101.

Crimestoppers for passing information about crime anonymously, call 0800 555 111.
