Remember, in an emergency always call 999. This is when you need an immediate response because
- a crime is in progress
- someone suspected of a crime is nearby
- there is danger to life
- violence is being used or threatened.
More than half of the 999 calls we receive do not relate to an emergency and could potentially delay police response to an urgent situation elsewhere.
Please use common sense. If your situation doesn't require immediate police action although it's nevertheless important, do consider other ways of contacting us - we want to hear from you and assist you in any way we can.
In all other circumstances, you should phone 101, for example

101 is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week across England and Wales. Calls from landlines and mobile networks cost 15 pence per call, no matter what time of day or how long you are on the phone.
When you want to call us from another county, dial 101 and you will be given the option to speak to the local police force or be connected to another police force of your choice.
If you are calling from outside England and Wales, dial 01962 841534.
