Reporting a crime? How can we help?
If there is an emergency, always call 999. For police purposes, an emergency is when:
- There is a danger to life
- There is a risk of serious injury
- A crime is in progress or about to happen
- An offender is still at the scene
We aim to arrive at emergencies within 10 minutes.
- To report crime or anti-social behaviour
- To contact your local police station
- To get police assistance in a non-emergency
- For general queries

Note: The 101 service is part of a national programme to improve access to the police and will give the public an easy way to get in touch with the police for calls that do not require an urgent response. The system will work by redirecting people's calls, wherever they are in the country, to their nearest police force and is intended to be easier for people to remember. Callers using the number will incur a flat rate charge of 15p no matter how long the call lasts and whether their call is made from a landline or mobile. In an emergency, members of the public should continue to use 999.

It is important to note that the police do not deal with all issues that may affect the way you live or how you can improve your safety and well being. Help us to help you by not phoning the police when you don't need to. Often we receive calls which should be directed to other agencies. While we are tied up dealing with these calls, we cannot deal with police-related matters.
The following are to assist you in finding the correct agency to deal with your problem:
