101 Non-Emergency Number

999 Emergency Number – when a life is in danger, a crime is in progress or a suspect is nearby.

101 is the new number to contact the police when it’s less urgent than 999. 

The 101 non-emergency number will make it quicker and easier for you to contact the police when you don’t need an emergency response, for example to:

  • speak to your local police officer
  • report a crime that’s already happened, such as a theft or damage to property
  • get crime prevention advice
  • make us aware of any policing issues in your area

When you dial 101, the system will determine your location and connect you to the service centre covering your area.


MOUNTAIN RESCUE – dial 999 and ask for Police, then Mountain Rescue
