How to Contact the Police

Your local officers are:

Which Number do I need to ring?

Before ringing, consider the following:

  • Is life at risk?
  • Are offenders nearby?
  • Is someone injured?
  • Is immediate Police action necessary?

If the answer is yes to any of the above, then ring 999

You will be answered by a BT operator who will put you through to a Police Control room (without going through the force enquiry centre). The Control Room will take details and call the nearest Police Officer by radio to go to your incident.

For all other incidents or routine enquiries and advice, please ring
08452 777444

  • Your name and address including post code
  • Telephone numbers
  • Location of incident including post code / map reference if you know it
  • Details of what has happened
  • Is anyone hurt and need other emergency services
