News - 101 - Police non-emergency number

Please note that as from Tuesday 8 November 2011 there will be a new Police Non-Emergency Number 101.  Calls to 101 will cost 15p per call, no matter how long you are on the phone, this applies to both landlines and mobile phones.  For the first time, everyone calling the police for non-emergency matters will know exactly how much the call will cost them and will be assured of equal access whether they are on a pay-as-you-go mobile or a home landline.

In an emegency, the public should continue to call 999, such as when a crime is in progress, when there is danger to life or when vioklence is being used or threatened.

The current number (0300 333 3000) will continue to operate as a general switchboard number which should be used to speak to a particular person or a department.

We currently have a Local Police Officer, David Walton, as well as two CSO's Lyn Birch and Mark Barnes.

Any local matters you think they should be aware of, please telephone 0300 333 3000 Ext 69009.
