Non-Emergency Police Line

You should call 101 to report crime or other concerns that do not require an emergency response.

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 area

Or to:
report a minor traffic collision
give the police information about crime in your area
speak to the police about a general enquiry

What is the difference between 101 and 999?

You should continue to call 999 when it is an emergency, such as when a crime is in progress, someone suspected of a crime is nearby, when there is danger to life or when violence is being used or threatened.

To contact the police for any other reason, call 101.
