Contacting the Police if it is not an emergency

The 101 non emergency number.

  • 101 is the number to call when you want to contact the police when it’s less urgent than a 999 call.
  • 101 is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Calls to 101 (from landlines and mobiles) cost 15p per call, no matter what time of day you call, or how long you're on the phone.
  • The police aim to answer all 101 calls within 30 seconds. At times, particularly during major incidents, they might receive more calls than normal and you might wait slightly longer.

You should call the 101 non emergency number when you want to:

  • Report a crime or criminal damage.
  • Report a minor road traffic collision.
  • Contact your Neighbourhood Policing Team.
  • Ask about lost property.
  • Give us information about a crime or an offender.
  • Get information or advice about a policing issue.

For example, you should call 101 if:

  • Your car has been stolen.
  • Your property has been damaged.
  • You suspect drug use or dealing in your neighbourhood.
